Is your question about how to setup the shot, or the camera...or both?

Typically either in front of net or center ice - back row standing, front row kneeling. Ideally you'd want 2 off-camera flashes or strobes if you have them. Otherwise you'll want an external flash with wide-angle diffuser - shoot at f5.6-8.0 in RAW and you'll want the flash to overpower ambient so you don't get color casts from the arena lights on the players.

I am planning to using 3 flashes, 2 off camera(af540fgz) and 1 on camera(af360fhz).

Where would you place the 2 off camera flashes ? about 45 degres front left and right of the group and how far ? I was thinking about 20'. for flash height I was thinking about 7-8' ?

Would you use the on camera flash as controler or Master ?
