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.

Main Options:

  • Post-Up
  • Low Pivot
  • Corner Loop
Key Points:
  • 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)

4 Corner Passing – Stretch Pass

Posted by Kevin - Filed under: Hockey Drills
Tags: , ,

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.
