Defense are at center ice with the pucks.
Forwards are split up into the 2 adjacent corners.
1. The D go to the pylon and make a pass to the forward and pivot around the pylon and prepare for a 1 on 1.
2. Forward receives the pass and goes in on a 1 on 1.
Key is to make a nice hard pass.
-timing is important for the defense.
-D should work on closing the gap and taking their man to the outside.
-work on taking the outside, faking/deeking the D and protecting the puck.
Variation for all 1 on 1 mirrored drills
1. After 1 on 1 is complete the F receives a pass from F line and skates with the puck to the far end.
2. D from far end skates up ice and pivots playing opposite F in the 1 on 1.
