Simple Breakout Reverse to 2 on 1

This progression works on a reverse breakout. Two defensive players will start on the two face off dots in each end.  The strong side defense will retrieve the puck and wheel behind the net. The weak side defense will go to the front of the net and then call for a "reverse" as their partner wheels behind the net.  When the puck carrier gets to the far post they will use the wall to bank it back to the opposite side so the weak side defense can pick up the puck and make a pass to the forward on the wall. Then they need to re-take their ice (at least around the tire) against the two forwards coming down the ice from the other end.

The first forward is the one that dumps the puck deep into the zone to start the drill.  The first forward will become the winger and look for a breakout pass from the defense on the wall.  The second forward will swing through the middle and support the winger on the wall through the middle of the ice. The forwards will attack the defense from the other end. It is good to introduce different ways for the forwards to attack the defense in 2 on 1 situations.
