Hockey / Passing / Shooting

2 on 0 Escape

This youth hockey drill works on some important fundamentals for forwards.

Description

The first objective is to catch a pass in stride and attack the blue line with speed. In this hockey drill the coach can pass to either player so the players need to react to where the coach passes the puck. The player that receives the pass attacks the blue line and does an escape move just inside the blue line. The other player drives hard to the far post with their stick on the ice expecting a pass. The player with the puck fires a pass across to the far post and continues to the slot area. The player that received the pass on the far post continues into the corner, picks up a loose puck in the corner, and finds the first player in the slot. The idea behind the second puck is for players to follow up the play.
