The neutral zone horse shoe is a good warm up hockey drill.  To set up, place four equal lines along the boards at the blue lines with pucks.  The lines diagonal from each other will go at the same time.  The first player in each line skates straight up the boards to the red line and then across the red line to receive a pass from the second player in the other line (see diagram).  As they skate across the red line players need to give a target and call for the puck.  They should not head up ice until they get the pass, otherwise they are receiving the pass in a vulnerable position.
