Description

Quick passing/receiving/timing drill. 4 active D’s passing in the middle. (Other D’s go with FW’s and change on coaches signal). ONE puck on the move continuously in «NZ». FW from the blue line have to read the play and time the movement to be open in the middle. When FW receives the puck he quickly moves it to other D and keeps his speed moving into the attacking zone where he receives a new puck from FW in the corner and cuts to the middle (behind passing D’s) for a quick shot while striding across the ice. FW who makes a pass from the corner drives to the net for a rebound and then goes to the line at the blue line.

Key points

Quick and hard passes. Smooth pivots, keep the feet moving. Receive/release. Head up to aim your pass. Timing.
