Coach spots puck in the corner off of the wall. F1 sets up beside the net slightly ahead of D1 off to the side a little bit. On the whistle, F1’s first move is to step in front of D1 to cut him off from getting to the puck. F1 now skates hard to the corner to retrieve the puck, making one or two evasive moves to shake off the D before attacking the net under pressure from D1.
F should separate the D from the puck immediately, getting his body between the puck and the D. Good puck protection technique and keep your feet moving. Start with light pressure then build to full one on one.
