This drill emphasizes the position of the defense as they regroup. The defensemen without the puck needs to be in a support position slightly behind their partner. and a little less than half the ice width apart. This way their partner can give them a pass without having to make the dangerous pass all the way across the ice. The defensemen who receives the pass needs to explode up the ice to draw defenders to them and then make the pass to the forwards. By exploding up the ice the player will make themselves a threat by carrying the puck, passing to an open forward, or running a give and go with a forward and join the offensive rush.
