Outside Loop Passing

This hockey drill is a great way to start practice, the players get a lot of touches on the puck and you can emphasize skating aspects as well.  One way to start the drill is by having the coach make the first pass.  Once the first pass is made the players skate down the ice making as many passes as possible.  Once the players reach the far blue line they curl to the outside along the boards.  The player that has the puck makes a power turn and skates hard back to the far blue line.  This player should work on skating hard and maintaining control of the puck with their head up.  The player without the puck transitions so they are always facing the puck carrier.  As they turn up ice they sprint back to the far blue line.

The goalies can do their own warm up drills at the other end either with a coach or selected players.
