On Ice Example

Whiteboard Breakdown

Drill Breakdown 

  • A 2 on 2 with no sticks for D-men. Coaches may give the D a tire to challenge them more, but not a stick.
  • To begin coach can dump the puck in the zone or pass it to a player.
  • The forwards try and score and the D work to stop and kick the puck out of the zone.
  • This demonstrates why D should keep their sticks on the ice in real situations.
