Identical Twins

Aug. 19, 2020 at 10:46 a.m. MDT

"Identical Twins", is a 1vs1 attack and defend drill. On the whistle, a forward and defenseman both leave at the same time and skate a mirror pattern through the cones. The forward is carrying a puck. Once the forward hits the end of the pattern and skates through the two cones they attack 1vs1 with the defense man who is attempting to keep up during the cone skating. On the whistle, the next group of players begins. Run out of either one end or both ends. Alternate player roles in the drill.

Teaching Points

Offensive: Breakaway speed around the cones to lose the defender. Read the defender while simultaneously carrying the puck. Be deceptive on zone entry and attempt to create a shot on goal. Defensive: Time skating with that of the the attacker, maintain a tight gap coming off of the cones and attempt to control the middle of the ice.
