Back Check Transition/Pin D/5v5 Low

Back to free drills

Description

F2 chips puck to the corner to start the battle between F1 and D4. F2 then supports to recover the loose puck and walk out of the corner to create quick 2@1 with F3. After the initial attack, bank pass up to D for a quick shot with a screen in front. The next attacking line heads up ice with a red line back checking.

Key points

On the whistle, F6, F7 and F8 head up ice 3@2 and F1, F2 and F3 must back check hard to defend low 5@5. D men can jump up to create a 4@3 rush if they can beat the back checkers up the ice. If there is a quick clear by defenders, the Coach can throw in a second puck.
