PRK-LUX Offensive Rush, Cross Before Blue Line

  • Always get shot on goal when in middle lane
  • Make the easy pass; Shoot on Hard Pass

Defensive Mistakes Luxembourg: (Bad Defensive Balance)

  • Outnumbered on boards
  • All 5 players on one side of ice 
  • 4 players on the boards
  •  Defense gives up blue line (Bad Gap) 

PRK outnumbers  Luxembourg by getting two guys on puck.

 Five Luxembourg players are on one side of ice. 

  • Always Stop Set-UP  (Korea reads loose puck and pressures up)
  • Always out number the opposition - PRK does great job outnumbering to get puck.

  • Read the loose puck
  • Read the space and cross to middle lane

  • Crossing player must stay disciplined not to go off sides
  • Player with the puck, must get puck into shooting position


  • Cross - Man without the puck crosses in front of puck carrier

  • The cross create space and defender back up into zone

  • The puck carrier has the puck in T.O.P. Position
    • Three Offensive Play - The player can shoot, pass or fake.

  •  Always go to the net for rebound - Stop at net!
