That split second before the puck is dropped on a face off, the players who are taking the draw feel a mixture of confidence and pressure. Face offs are an integral part of a hockey game that rile and excite fans and players alike. The number of face offs won can determine the momentum of the team, and ultimately, the outcome of a game. Because of their importance, the strongest face off man should take the draw whenever possible, especially in the defensive end. By being calm, focused, and confident, winning a draw will not seem as intimidating and will lead your team to success.
