Back to free drills

Description

3 Wide Drive entry at the offensive blue line with D trailer. D jump up and try to come down middle ice, calling for a pass if open in the offensive zone. If defenders clear quickly, Coach can throw in a second puck.

Key points

Red players back check hard to the defensive zone. Good communication between forwards and Defensemen to sort out D coverage. Attack the net on the rush and drive for rebounds. Variation: When back checkers reach their defensive blue line, C1 throws them a new puck and they attack back 3v2 against the original 2 D.
