This is a 1 on1 that puts the defensive player in a disadvantage and challenges them to keep the forward from scoring.  The defense start on their knees behind the net without pucks.  The forwards start at the hash marks along the boards with pucks.  On the whistle, F1 attacks the net while D1 comes out to challenge.  The forwards must stay lower than the face off dots. This forces them to challenge the defense head on.  The first variation of this drill is to add another line of forwards on the opposite side and have both forwards attack at once.  This is almost impossible for the defense, but they can try to disrupt the pass and force the puck carrier into a bad position.  The next variation is to add another defensive player so it becomes a 2 on 2 down low.
