"Creating motion allows them to be instinctual. A lot of that comes from shooting the puck, retrievals, obviously motion, and all that creates unpredictability."

In episode 224 of the Glass and Out Podcast, we’re joined by good friend of The Coaches Site and upcoming TCS Live presenter, Glen Gulutzan.

When Gulutzan steps on stage at TCS Live later this month at the University of Michigan, it will mark the 5th time he has presented at one of our events, and in the process he will hold the pole position when it comes to the most presentations all-time at a TCS event.

Gulutzan has overseen the Edmonton Oilers power play, which has led the NHL in efficiency the past two seasons. In the first two rounds of these playoffs it was especially lethal, humming along at a clip of 46%. And while having two of the best players in the world doesn’t hurt, he believes it’s all about allowing your players to play to their strengths and instincts.

“It’s structured road hockey. We have the most dynamic players in the world. We need to have them in motion. Creating motion allows them to be instinctual. A lot of that comes from shooting the puck, retrievals, obviously motion, and all that creates unpredictability.

Listen as he discusses coaching two “hockey geniuses,” cutting his teeth as a coach in Las Vegas, and how he’s learned from all the coaches he’s worked with throughout his career.
