Up and Back 2 Part Progression Drill from Topher Scott is a continuous drill that helps work on the transition and communication. There are two parts of this full ice drill: Part 1 is a continuous 1 vs. 1 that turns into a 2 vs. 2 and Part 2 of the drill is a 2 vs. 1 that turns into a 3 vs. 3. Coaches should reinforce communication, transitioning, and getting back quickly.
