In Coaching Hockey, Drills by CoachThemLeave a Comment

This drill was provided by Minnesota skills coach Danny Heath (follow him on Instagram: @danny_hype), and is a great way for forwards to work on their net drive, puck protection skills and creativity. Defencemen will have to use their stick and body positioning to close space and cut down the angle of attack.

Drill description

  • F skates down the wall and around the bumper and then drives the net for a shot on goal
  • D skates forwards, pivots around the bumper and then skates forward and angles F

Key points

  • D take away the middle of the ice and don’t allow a cut back
  • F be creative on the attack and try to get to the middle of the ice

Here’s how it looks in practice:
