This drill incorporates lots several skills for defensmen and allows the goalie to get involved as well. The player pivots from backward to forward to retrieve the puck that was dumped into the corner by the second player in line. When coming around the net the defensmen needs to stay inside the face off dot and make a pass to the defensmen at the point who walks to the center and shoots hard and on the ice. This allows the goalie to control the puck and make a breakout pass to the first defensmen who is now at the hash marks along the boards. The next pass is then to the second defensmen at the point, who then walks the puck to the middle again and shoots. The first defensmen then takes the point and the second defensmen goes to the end of the line.
