Description D1 comes around the top of the centre ice, pivots backwards, receives a pass from F and moves it quickly across to D3 who has moved into position beside him. D3 takes the pass, steps up to pass to F who is coming around the pylon. F skates in hard for a shot and D3 skates hard around the pylon to start the next repetition.
Key points Great warm up Drill to get your D’s feet and hands going.D men must move their feet quickly in this drill to be in position for each pass. After the D man takes the wide pass from the other D man he pivots and steps up before making the pass to the forward. For younger players, have the 2nd D man stay outside the curling D man before getting into position to take the D to D pass. More experienced D men can cut inside as shown in the last repetition.
