Figure 8 Angling to checking

Drill Diagram


Forward and D start inside face-off circle facing each other. On the whistle, the forward breaks up to the blue line and around a cone, picking up a puck. The forward will then drive wide to try to either wrap around or cut in to the net.

The defenseman will start on the whistle skating backwards around the cone at the bottom of the face-off circle, then transition forward and come up to the cone at the inside hash mark and use the faceoff circle as a guide to help them create their angle to the puck carrier.
