"Transition Kings", will be a player favorite!! Teams are divided and line up behind their respective blue lines. A three on three occurs in the neutral zone. As soon as the puck crosses either blue line the first player in line, on that side, initiates a breakout pass for their color. Pucks can intentionally shot across team's own blue line to initiate breakout attacks. This game challenges thinking, hockey sense and competitiveness all in one. Players can change on the fly in this game.
Breakout Passer: Ensure passing lanes are open and try not to force pucks to covered players. Move the puck quickly before defenders can establish a defensive posture.
Offensive Players: Find open ice quickly with speed. Demand puck with confidence.
Defensive Players: Close lanes to support options with good sticks and camoflauge defense whereby players pretend they do not see open players and then step in and pick off passes.
