I have the 2 most relavant, haven't read the scoring one.
Also, another thing I've never seen is an individual "rule book" for players other than goalies. Tons of books for that type of thing for goalies, but not for players.
What I mean by "rule book" is all the things you should do as an individual dependant on what your position is, and only as the individual. I've made up my own "rules", like
short passes rather than the riskier long ones
it's better to "eat" the puck rather than make a blind pass
try to remember where everyone is
and of course all the classics like don't pass or skate through your own crease or in front of the goal.
I've seen all this covered in books\videos as a team, but not as individual.
Another good one would be "what to think" as you're playing, on offense, make yourself open by find space, or what should I do if I get the puck altho it seems unlikely right now, try to keep track of where everyone is... all that stuff.
