CoachThem Dill of the Week Ice Hockey Coach Tips and Drills Angling

CoachThem Drill of the Week – Cross Ice Angling

In Drills by Mike Weaver

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 B: 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 not to cut back.
