This is a half ice hockey drill that incorporates a lot of footwork while constantly moving the puck.  To set up the drill place one line of players in the corner with the pucks and designate 3 passers.  The first player in line skates up the boards with a puck to the top of the circles,  curls back towards the net and gives a pass to P1.  After the pass F1 transitions back towards the boards so they are always facing P1 and calls to the pass.  When they receive the pass back from P1 they skate up the boards and give a pass to P2.  In the neutral zone F1 transitions backwards and makes as many passes with P2 as possible.  Once they get to the far side of the ice they pivot with the puck forwards, skate towards P3 and give P3 a pass.  Right after the pass the player transitions backwards into the slot, receive the puck back from P3, and then take a shot on net.  The second player in line starts after P1 makes the pass to F1.
