This hockey drill focuses on timing through the neutral zone and a delay in the offensive zone.  Divide the players in to four equal lines. Place the four lines as shown in the diagram.  The lines on the inside have the pucks.  The drill starts when P1 skates up the boards and cuts to the middle of the ice to receive a pass from P4.  P4 has to time their move so they are making a pass when P1 is in a good position to receive the  pass in the middle of the ice.  After P1 receives the pass they carry the puck into the offfensive zone and do an escape move towards the boards to buy time for P4.  P1 then makes a pass to P4 for a shot on net.  Right after P1 receives the pass, the next two players start the drill in the opposite direction.
