This study is planned to review the effect of the plyometrics training performed by icemen on the Dominant and Nondominant leg concentric and isokinetic power values at angular speed. Totally 14 male icemen, the age average of training group is (21,42±4,79), control group’s age average is (21,12±3,44). After being measured the knee extension and flexion, concentric isokinetic power properties, the athletes were divided into two groups as  control and training groups so as to be seven people in each of them by the random  method. The data obtained are analyzed by Mann Whitney-U and Wilcoxon Signed tests by computing the descriptive statistics in SPSS 16 program. While the control group was performing ice hockey for three days a week for eight weeks, the training group was performing the plyometrics training in addition to the same technical training. There is found a significant difference (p<0.05) between 60 deg/sec, 180 deg/sec and 300 deg/sec dominant leg extensor concentric and isokinetic powers. Even though there is a numerical increase between 60 deg/sec, 180 deg/sec, and 300 deg/sec dominant leg flexor concentric and isokinetic powers, no statistically significant difference is determined (p>0.05). A numerical increment is found in 60 dec/sec, 180 dec/sec and 300 dec/sec nondominant leg extensor concentric and isokinetic power. However, there is not seen any statistical enhancement in nondominant leg extensor concentric and isokinetic powers in spite of the numerical increase as 60 dec/sec,  180 dec/sec and 300 dec/sec.
