Watch as much hockey as you can. Youtube hockey strategy on breakouts, special teams, and attacking the zone.
Pay attention to defenseman, they're the smarter players because it helps when you have the game in front of you and they have alot of impact on the flow of the game.
Just keep it simple. Anytime you watch a team dump and chase, pay attention to where the wings and centers position themselves to attack in hopes of forcing a turnover.
On the next dump n chase, watch where the defending team positions themselves for an attempt at a successful breakout.
Same with neutral zone regroups. Watch how the D partner is slightly off parallel for support before getting the pass. Then watch how the forwards are cycling thru to give the D options.
A lot of the game is about speed, cycling and turnovers. The more you focus on solid positioning, the easier the game will become.
There's a quote about Gretzky saying he never played where the puck was, just where it was going to next. Something like that. Good luck!
