Break Out Basics 1vs0 Wheel

Back to free drills

Description

D1 steps up over the blue line, pivots backwards, retrieves the puck, wheels behind the net and makes a break out pass to F2 on the wall. F2 skates up around the face-off circle and goes in for a shot. F2 stops at the net then backs into the face-off circle into position to get a rebound off of the next shooter.

Key points

Forwards time their pivot towards the wall and pivot to the wall once the D-man has committed to wheeling the net. Forwards pivot towards the wall, forwards to backwards, always keeping their eyes on the puck. D-men make a quick, tape to tape outlet pass.
