An excellent drill to work on puck protection. The setup is simple, two offensive players and one defensive player in the circle. The goal is for the offensive players to skate around and work on protecting the puck with moves, their body and stick. The goal for the defensive player is to knock the pucks out of the circle. The drill stops if the defenceman knocks out both pucks or if the coach blows the whistle. If the defenceman are knocking the pucks away too easily, you can have the defense flip their stick. The drill is good to switch forwards and defenceman and allow players to get reps at both sides.
