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.”
