In this offensive zone face off play the idea is to set up the right winger with a one-time shot opportunity in the slot. In this diagram the right handed shot should be a designated SNIPER! Of course this can be run from the other side using a left handed shot. The play is starts with a win back to the board side defense. The puck goes D to D and then down to the off-side winger who has gone around the net. Usually they will have lost any defensive coverage and should be open. At the same time the designated SNIPER has circled high into the slot and is timing their break into the slot. The off-side winger then looks to deliver the puck to the SNIPER in the slot.
