Coach Nielsen's Ice Hockey Drills

Drills for Forwards

Recently I’ve been asked by coaches to provide drills to work on skills for just the forwards. I got together with a few coaching buddies and came up with a list of some drills that will help develop skills specifically designed for forwards. Many of the drills on the site already have the forwards working in conjunction with the rest of the team to build team concepts, but these drills go to the specific parts of the forward play that can help the overall team concept. We hope you find them helpful.

Keep in mind some of the best drills to work on skills for forwards are included in the small area games section, so be sure to look at those as well.

Also cycling is a major part of the forwards skill set so be sure to work on some of the drills in the cycling section.
