D Retrieval and Options (Morgan Rielly)

Drill Diagram


The D going through the progression begins in the D1 position each time.
1st puck is retrieved just below goal line and first pass is "up" to X1 representing a strong side Winger. (Black diagram)
2nd puck is retrieved and X2 slides below goal line and calls for supporting D to D pass (Can be direct or indirect, work on both, blue diagram)
3rd puck is retrieved and D1 reversed and wheels to open week side. X1 curls low and gives middle option (Red diagram)

Use varied D for X1 and X2 so they understand the timing of the F and stick targets

Tags: Work on tape to tape passes in this progression where possible. Head up and shoulder check on each retrieval
