This drill works on the players ability to angle.  The players line up in two lines on each side of the coach as shown.  The coach will have all the pucks.  On the whistle the first player in each line skates down to the blue line, makes a tight turn and skates back towards center ice.  The coach passes a puck to one of the players who will then become the offensive player.  The other player becomes the defensive player.  The defensive player's objective is to angle the puck carrier towards the other side of the ice.  They need to angle the player so that they cannot cut back.
