"Jail Break", adds another dimension to your practice repertoire. Players really enjoy the challenge and strategy this drill provides. On the whistle, two players from each team leave the bench, retrieve one puck from the center circle and attack 2vs0. Teams go until they score and then must backcheck to the near blueline to defeat the other team. Once this occurs the whistle goes signifying the winning pair. The winning pair then decides whether to put an opponent in jail or pull one of their teammates out of jail. The first team putting all of the opponents into jail is the winner of the game. You can use the penalty boxes as the jail or use cones on the ice.

Teaching Points

Attacks: Quick and deceptive puck movement to open up scoring angles. Stop net front for rebounds and do not circle below the goal line. Stick fakes, head fakes, body fakes and quick release shooting make it challenging for the goaltenders. Remember to hustle to the blue line to eliminate the opponent as many battles are very close.
