Lateral Net Movement

Drill Diagram


Player starts heading toward net - stops extending puck beyond the side of the net and cuts laterally to the next net, stopping and extending the puck beyond the side of the net. Player then cuts laterally back across the ice and drives the net.

Notes: The concept of this drill is to get players used to moving laterally with the puck and being more creative in the zone. The net works well because it provides a large obstical for the players to avoid.
