The Vancouver Transition drill is a great way to replicate an odd-man rush and work on three-player zone entries. Build this into a progression by adding in additional defenders and practicing set plays off the rush.
- F1 starts drill with puck and exchanges passes with D1 while skating down the ice
- Once D1 reaches the far blue line, he/she pivots and passes the puck to F2 in the corner
- F2 steps out and drives down the ice with F1, with D1 trailing the play for a 3-on-1 against the coach
- After the first group turns up ice, D2 steps out and continues drill with F3
