Drill Description:

Emphasizes Offensive and Defensive Net Front Play

Version 1

  • Begins with two players from each team inside the end zone, neutral goaltender and a point man from each team near the blue line.
  • On a change of possession, each team must pass the puck to their point man before they can score.
  • The point man can shoot or pass but must advance the puck quickly.
  • When the puck is moved out to the opponents point man, the defenders must identify and open opponent and defend the net front.

Version 2

Key Points:

  • Defenders should pressure opponents quickly with good sticks to win back possession.
  • No turning back to the play or overplaying the opposition point man.
