PK Defender Cross Fire

Back to free drills

Description

Set up with 3 attackers on both sides of the end zone with 3 defenders down the middle. The attackers try to maintain puck control and make as many cross-ice passes as possible through the defenders. One defender tries to force the puck carrier to limit his time and space and force passes into tight areas. The other two defenders position themselves to cut off cross-ice passes. Defenders may rotate in a new active defender when the original defender rotates out to the middle area.

Key points

Read the attackers and adjust your positioning to take away passing lanes with good body positioning and active sticks. Encourage a lot of communication on the offensive and defensive side of the puck. Aggressively attack the puck. PP players move the puck quickly.
