Half-rink Back-checking

Drill:

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

Focus:
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

Notes:
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.
