CoachThem Drill of the Week: Defencemen agility, with screen

In Coaching Hockey, Drills by Mike WeaverLeave a Comment

This week’s drill is great to practice timing, neutral zone transition, and net-front presence with your team. Focus on hard, crisp passes to initiate the drill and when springing the forward into the offensive zone!

Drill Description

  • F passes across to D who gets to centre and drags puck straight back
  • F with good timing, swings around and gets a pass from D, then goes down for a shot
  • D follows play and gets a pass from the coach for a point shot
  • F gets to net to create screen or tip option
  • Run drill on both sides of the ice at the same time
