Few topics polarize hockey's pundit populus and fan base like supplemental discipline and for good reason. Plays that spark calls for suspension are dangerous and often result in major injuries. We should talk about them.
Don't forget the parents. Most coaches kick off the season with a parents' meeting to lay down a few ground rules discuss philosophies and map out a course for the season. That's all well and good when the season is young and everyone is refreshed and ready to go. Keep the lines of communication open throughout the course of the season with regular meetings and weekly emails so you can discuss issues that may pop up from time to time.
USA Hockey strongly discourages checking from behind but if it should happen while you′re facing the boards get your stick and gloves up to spread out the area of impact. Use your arms as shock absorbers.
In some ways a breakaway might be easier than a penalty shot because you don′t have time to think about it. On a penalty shot you have more time to think and you know everybody′s watching you. A breakaway is just part of the game. Just go with the flow. Don′t think ‘Oh wow I′m on a breakaway.’ And if you miss just get the puck. Don′t get discouraged. Keep your head in the game.
