Surrounding the puck is a skill for any advanced level player to master.  It involves quickly turning your body around the puck to execute a pass in another direction quickly.  In this video, we demonstrate the concept in the neutral zone.

Forehand Passing & Receiving 101 (Video)

This week’s video discusses the basics of passing and receiving on the forehand.

Passing Key Teaching Points

  • With beginners, start with feet perpendicular to the target
  • Puck on the middle of the blade
  • Bring puck behind the back foot, slightly cupping the puck
  • Head up, look at your target
  • Push the puck forward in a straight line, transferring weight from the back leg to the front leg
  • Open your hips as you transfer the weight
  • Point your stick directly at the target on your follow through
  • Follow through low to the ice
Receiving Key Teaching Points
  • Start with blade flat on the ice and not angled
  • Blade should be parallel to the passing stick for optimal control
  • Blade should start about 6″ inside your front foot if feet are perpendicular to passer
  • Catch the puck in the middle of your stick blade
  • Absorb the impact of the puck by having a slight give (only a few inches) to the stick
  • Avoid un-necessary stickhandles before moving the puck again

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.
