CoachThem Hockey Drill of the Week: Rolly 2 vs 2 angling

In Coaching Hockey, Drills by CoachThemLeave a Comment

As seen in The Coaches Site Chalk Talk Series with Detroit Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill, the Rolly 2 vs 2 is a great small area game for angling practice. Focus extra emphasis on details of stick positioning and leading your opponent into “bad ice,” defending the quick first pass out of the zone.


  • Coach lays puck behind net, first two X’s go around net, either X can pick up puck. 2 O‘s at the far end of the line, gain ice and angle, play live 2v2
  • On whistle, opposite side coach lays puck and four new players go

Key Points:

  • Defending players use stick to steer their opposition into bad ice and use “stick on puck” to take it away.
