Coach Nielsen's Ice Hockey Drills

Chip To Speed Passing Drill

I worked this drill at practice last night and really liked the results. You have to keep the tempo high and make sure the players are focusing on making a good pass off the wall. I prefer the players to pass the puck off the yellow dasher and not up off the wall. I think you get a better pass with less flutter to the puck. You can start with the basic drill and then add pressure on F1 and even have F1 join the rush after the pass and have it be a 2-on-1 or 2-on-2. I think getting players familiar with making indirect passes off the wall is a skill that can really help your zone exits and really help a team work with speed through the neutral zone. Hope you find this drill helpful.
