  • Place one net on the far blue line.
  • Have 3 or 4 Power Play Players in the neutral zone.
  • Have 2 Penalty Kill forecheckers behind the net on the far blue line.
  • The drill is started with the coach dumping the puck down to the other end of the ice.
  • The all Power Play Players must enter their defensive zone and they attempt to break the puck out and score a goal.
  • The Penalty Kill players practice an aggressive Penalty Kill forecheck. 
  • On the whistle, a new group of players jumps on the ice.

Coaching Points

  • Penalty Kill Forecheck should keep speed, attack the puck early.
  • The second Penalty Kill forward should try to take away passing lanes in the middle of the ice.
