Jack Han, author of the Hockey Tactics Newsletter, was kind enough to provide this analysis of some Avs U18AA video to discuss shot suppression.

Positioning Quote from the Video
One of the most overlooked opportunities in life is how you are positioned when circumstances hit.
Good positions create options, while bad positions reduce them. You don’t have to be an expert decision-maker to get better results, you only need to put yourself in a good position. Anyone looks like a genius when all the options are good.
If you’re forced to do something because you need to and not because you choose to, things quickly spiral from bad to worse.
The person in the good position eventually takes advantage of the person in the poor position...
