Setting up a 1-2-2 forechecking system

Im going to be going over this system with my team during practice but i dont really know the best way to get it started. we have full ice so i dont want to just go to have ice and dump the puck in at half ice.

any suggestions? i guess i could dump it in the opposite side and have teh offensive team dump it into the offensive zone and begin the forecheck. will taht work? if anybody has anything better feel free to chime in

thanks

Well, there's a lot of things you can do with this. As you know, a 1-2-2 is like a neutral zone trap but in the attacking zone.

Normally what I do is do a full ice regroup in the neutral zone with two defending defensemen, so it's a 5 on 2. Yes, I know this doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but I want the 1-2-2 to get the feel of that pressure in the attacking zone.

As for the regroup, I place 5 large tires at center ice to make the team pass through the tires. Some times they miss the pass and the puck goes into the attacking zone. This is where I want them to set up in this 1-2-2.

However, if I can get them to regroup properlly in the neutral zone, then I want them to set up in a shooting triangle, have the goalie make the save, then have the line regroup in an inverted triangle by setting up behind the net.

Normally I see this 1-2-2 on a dump and chase. But, I'm not a big fan of dump and chase, so I require my team to attack the zone but placing the defensemen in a 2 on 1 situation to enter the zone. This way we don't have to dump it.

The tires at the neutral zone are to get the team to think about how to attack the trap successfully.

Send me a PM and I will send you some drills.

Hope this helps
