This drill is greared towards forwards and goalies. It is a simple drill that focuses on one of the more important skills that all goal scorers seem to have, a quick catch and release. The forward start close to the coach in the middle of the ice and skates as fast as they can around the cone. The coach give the player a pass as they are going around the cone. The player is to catch the pass and release the shot in one motion. NO STICKHANDLING! Once the shot is taken then the next forward from the other line goes. Do about 5-6 repetitions and then let the goalie get a short rest. This will be challenging for most players but it is a great skill to have.
