Dot Doctor

Aug. 24, 2020 at 9:07 a.m. MDT

"Dot Doctor" is a precision puck handling drill. The first player attacks the face-off lines and maneuvers the puck around the dot. These ice markings create puck handling lanes in which the player moves the puck through while rotating his body around the immediate area. The goal is to avoid having the puck cross the lines while players utilize the toe drag, push, pull, and flip up. After 20 seconds the next player begins and the first player rests. If players lose the puck the resting player spots a new one.

Teaching Points

Puck Control: Dynamic and tilting blade, handle the puck in close to the feet and away from the body. Elbows are bent and hands close together (one glove length apart). Utilize the toe drag, push and pull action to maximize success. Have players attempt to look up and down as opposed to staring at the puck and the lines.
