Russian Suicides (The Admiral)

Drill:

1. First Offensive player carries puck to other end and makes shot
2. At the shot, Offensive player in that zone takes off with a puck
3. First offensive player must transition after shot and chases next player trying to stop them from scoring

Focus:
1. Hard skating
2. Stickhandling and shooting
3. Quick transition from Offense to Defense
4. Chasing down a player from behind (backchecking)

Notes:
This is a great drill to get the kids going on a slow night. It really focuses on skating, stickhandling and shooting as quickly as possible.
One of my favorite drills to do in practice. Backchecking is a huge part of the game.
