In Coaching Hockey, Drills by CoachThemLeave a Comment

This week’s drill is a classic 1 vs 1 box out to full ice rush. It’s great for forwards to help build their low drive while building traffic in the net-front and is excellent practice for the defence in their quick transition out of the offensive zone, taking on a full-ice attack.
