Hi, Hockey is a team sport and most of the information I found fell into two categories, either simply a description of th duties of the different positions, or strategies for teams as a whole to work together to play effectively. Hopefully you can use these links to your best advantage: Player Positions [ http://hockey.lifetips.com/Cat.asp__Q__id__E__56078 ] Hockey Positions [ http://www.hockeyphreak.com/positions.html ] Strategy [ http://www.lifetimehockey.com/Strategy.htm#After%20a%20Goal%20is%20Scored ] Plays you Need to Know [ http://www.lifetimehockey.com/Hockey_plays_.htm ] Offensive Strategy: Offensive Strategy As you're skating through the neutral zone, try to keep one of the forwards in each "lane" of the ice. These forwards should not be in a straight line -- they should be at different depths. For example ... | F1 | | F2 | | | | | | | F3 | | Always keep one person high in the opposition's zone. If the puck is turned over, this person is in a better position for backchecking. Maintain a triangle between the three forwards as you attack in the opposition's zone. ________ | goal | ^ F1 F2 | | attack F3 | [ http://www.whockey.com/tip/playing/ ] It seems that the best guides to strategic playing of each ofthe positions would be found in books dedicated to the topic, such as these: Complete Hockey Instruction: Skills and Strategies for Coaches and Players [ http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0809235110/qid=1085165952/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/103-2273616-6292641?v=glance&s=books ] Hockey Strategy [ http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0346123674/qid=1085166040/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_4/103-2273616-6292641?v=glance&s=books ] I trust this has answered your question satisfactorily. If you require a clarification, please request one, especially before rating this answer. Thank you for bringing your question to Google Answers! Good luck and have fun! Regards, Andrewxmp
