Last Minute Puck Races


Drill:
  1. Lineup pucks down the middle of the rink between the blue lines
  2. Make 2 lines of players in each corner
  3. On whistle, players race for the puck
  4. First player tries to score on a breakaway
  5. Second player backchecks
Focus:
  1. Speed to a loose puck
  2. Speed carrying the puck on a breakaway
  3. Speed on the back-check to breakup the play
Notes:
Remind your players that this drills is designed to make them think about chasing a puck in the last minute of play and they have the chance to end the game, stop a goal, etc. 

I always run this the last 5 minutes of practice when they are tired.  I remind them there is no time to be tired and out of breath at the end of the game.
