This drill helps players work on a neutral zone play that actually happens quite a bit in a game. The winger gets pressured by the defense at the blue line and is forced to dump the puck in. If the winger can learn to use some touch and chip the puck into the zone when the center has speed coming through the neutral zone, it can create some scoring chances. Players in this drill need to pay attention as the second player in line is giving the pass to the player swinging through center ice. The first player times their release so they receive the puck at or just after the red line. This player then needs to chip the puck off of the boards into the zone and into a space where the player coming throught the middle can pick up the puck and get a good scoring chance. It doesn't hurt to place a coach on the blue line to apply some token pressure and simulate pressure by the defense.
