This drill emphasises defensmen's footwork and passing abilities. This can be thought of as a situational drill for the neutral zone transition. As the defensmen receives the pass, they need to turn up ice with their head up ready to pass to an open player. On occasion they can turn the puck up with enough speed to keep the puck and generate their own rush into the offensive zone.
