D200 - Random Game 1 to 4 Players – Pro

Key Points:

Players have to count to read the situation from 1-1 to 4-4 and all in between like 3-2, 4-2, etc.

Description:

1. Players wait outside the blue line in two teams and the coach says how many go the next whistle.
2. Play 20-30” shifts and keep score.
3. It is safer and promotes better habits if the puck is passed to teammates coming on instead of just leaving a puck and putting in a new puck.

*Option one is to allow an outnumbered player to give and go with a waiting teammate who can join if the passes are successful.

*Option two is have modified rules on the type of goals, i.e. only one touch shots or how many passes or how long with the puck, i.e. only two seconds with the puck and you must pass or shoot.

Terry Johnson a former NHL defenseman who I have coached with at university and youth hockey helped me with conditioning camp practices this weekend. Last night he did a drill he said I used to run a long time ago and it is terrific because it creates different situations that the F and D have to recognize. One group had 27 skaters with 10 D. So we gave the option of more than one F leaving from the corner and alternate between one or two D. So sometimes the rush may be 4-1 or 4-2 at one end. It is a drill I will use a lot now and get a video.

C6 - Rush Recognition x 2 - U18 F

Key Points:

Both the defense and the forwards must read the game situation. It could be a 1-1, 1-2, 2-2, 3-2, 3-1 or if two forwards go there could be 4 on the attack on one side. Defender must learn to look and see who the next player up ice is to recognize if it is a 1-1, 2-1, 1-2 etc..

Description:

1. Forwards in diagonal corners and at the red line on each side and D in diagonal corners.
2. Start with F1 leaving from one corner and F2 from the other with a puck.
3. F1 pass to F3 and F2 pass to F4 who touch pass the puck back to F1 and F2.
4. D1 and D2 skate out past the blue line to defend vs. F1 and F2.
5. F3 make a decision to either to either join F1 on the rush or go across the ice and join F4.
6. F4 decide to either join F2 or go across and join F1 who is attacking vs. D1.
7. If you have more than four defenseman you can send 2 D to defend the rush on one or both sides.
8. You can also send more than one forward to start the rush or alternate one then two D or F.
