On the Board with Mike Johnston: “Strip and go” and “Alain 2 on 2 game”

In Coaching Hockey, Drills by The Coaches SiteLeave a Comment

In this week’s edition of On the Board with Mike Johnston, the Winterhawks GM and head coach shares a great backcheck and transition drill, and a competitive 2 on 2 game.

Every week, we’ll be releasing two drills, as Johnston provides insight on how to best implement them into your practice.

Drill 3: Strip and go

“This drill is a realistic, game-like drill where you’re simulating a hard backcheck, transitioning the puck, and taking off and attacking.”

Drill 4: Alain 2 on 2 game

“You’re working all aspects of team play but in a competitive situation where you’re keeping track of the score.”
