To celebrate Cyber Monday, we’ve got another new video for you. This time we return to the topic of power skating to show you the quick crossover power skating maneuver. The drill works primarily on the outside edge push of a crossover as well as quick feet.
Push finishes with the toe of the blade (keep heels low to ice)
To celebrate Black Friday, we wanted to give you some good content to digest (along with all the turkey) as well as provide you with some great holiday shopping deals (see below the video). In this video, we cover breakout options for the strong-side wing.
Re-accelerate when receiving the pass
Learn to catch the pass on both forehand and backhand side
Survey your pressure & options before receiving the pass
Use the corner loop only when you have lots of time (typically on a power play breakout)

This week’s video covers some easy to run drills to improve your lateral movement. Whether it be on the playing a rush as a defensemen, or making a move as a forward, lateral movement is important to develop in all players.
Lately I’ve been receiving a lot of requests for some more advanced drills. This drill is a variation on one of my favorite drills (4 Corner Passing). The variation focuses primarily on stretch passes and timing. I would recommend this drill for Bantams or older, as some of the younger teams will not be able to move the puck quick enough or execute the cross-body pass effectively to keep the timing of the drill. This video walks through the drill and explains some key portions. The entire drill was drawn using the HockeyShare Drill Diagrammer.
