"Catch Me If You Can", challenges forwards and defense men in a zone battle. Three pucks are spotted in the zone. On the whistle, the forward can skate to any of the three pucks (deceptively changing direction- if they choose), Once they touch the puck they attack the defensive player 1vs1 until they hear the coaches whistle (10 -15 seconds). The forward then goes to either of the the other two pucks and repeats......then on to the third puck. The defensive player attempts to regap the offensive player on each new puck which eliminates time and space.
Offensive: Be deceptive in retrieving the pucks to fool the defender and to create time and space. Force commitment by the defensive player and protect the puck with body position. Battle hard until the whistle with relentless pursuit. Defensive: Re-gap on each puck to take away time and space quickly, maintain defensive side body position, stay in battle mode until the whistle is blown. If defensive player gains possession play keep away against the offensive player.
