This drill is a regroup drill in which players work on the center outlet.  It is intended to work on the timing of the forwards so they put themseleves in a good position to receive a pass from the defense.  A lot of players have the tendency to get too far ahead of the play and therefore do not provide a good angle for the defense to make a pass to the center lane. Place pucks along the boards at the blue line on both sides (as shown) and in both corners of the offensive zone.  Forwards line up along the boards at the offensive blue. Defense form three lines in  the defensive zone (as shown).  On the whistle the defense skate forwards to the blue line and transition backwards.  The player along the boards picks up a puck and controls it as they transition backwards.  The forward starts at teh same time and skates towards the line of defense in front of them.  D1 makes a pass to the other defense who should receive the puck and move up ice to make a pass to F1. F1 skates through center ice to receive a pass from D2.  F1 need to time their break to receive the pass at a good angle.  F1 then takes the puck down the ice and shoots.  After the shot F1 skates into the corner, picks up a puck and makes a pass back to D2 who is following the play.
