CoachThem Drill of the Week: Cross Ice Angling A/B

In Drills by Mike WeaverLeave a Comment

Drill Description

  • On the whistle, a puck carrier and a defensive player leave at the same time. The puck carrier skates around the pylons nearest him/her and turns up ice. The defensive player must skate the width of the ice and angle the puck carrier to the wall.

    Version 2

  • When they master the art of the angle, give the player with puck an option to turn up ice.

Key Points:

  • Remind the players how important stick placement is. Drag stick behind the opposition player to force him or her to not cut back.
