No Mans Land
"No Man's Land", is exactly that!!!! This drill works on both attack options and principals and defending the rush tactics. The offensive team begins on the blue line with a puck and goes around the back of the net and attacks. The defenders go the opposite direction and behind their net and attempt to defend. The drill is played out 3vs3 full ice for about 30 seconds. On the whistle, the team that hustles their three players off the ice the quickest and on to the bench will begin the next shift with puck possession. Keep score and watch the intensity go through the roof!!!!
Attack: Width, depth and player separation. The goal is to create multiple pass options on zone entry.
Defend: Players are to Identify (communication), which will create three one versus ones. Close the gap and adjust pivot and skating speed to counter the attack.
