Half-rink Back-checking


1. Player 1 starts with the puck and skates up around the closest cone
2. Player 2 has to skate around the top cone and chase down the player with the puck

1. Player with the puck should focus on speed, stickhandling and protecting the puck
2. Backchecking player should focus on getting their stick under the other players stick or creating a disruption

This is a great drill for a competition during practice. Gives the kids something to play for as they don’t want to get chased down.
