Jeff Sauer draws upon his vast collegiate and international coaching experience to describe man-to-man, rotational, and 1-2-2 trap defenses. Coach Sauer's man-to-man defense emphasizes proper rotations when your defense gets beaten in the defensive zone. His rotational defense instruction focuses on taking the offense out of scoring position by creating 4-on-3 situations below the face-off circles in the defensive zone. The 1-2-2 trap instruction begins in the offensive zone, demonstrating the importance of angling players toward the boards as the puck is advanced. Each defense is demonstrated on-ice, using game highlights to reinforce proper rotations.
