Start and Stop Angling 1vs1

Back to free drills

Description

Two players do a series of stops and starts facing each other, then both make sharp turns around the last pylons. The offensive player picks up the puck on the wall and tries to drive to the net around the deepest pylon. The defensive player tries to angle the offensive player to the wall to prevent him from getting to the net.

Key points

Start and stop skating using both edges on each stop, two hands on the sticks during stops. The offensive player must go around the last pylon before driving to the net. Second option: Advance inside pylon and defender must now pivot backwards and provide inside out pressure on the attacker.
