  • Each group of 3 gets 2 quick reps before changing all 3 players.
  • In the first rep, X2 rims the puck to X3 and becomes a defender for the net nearest them (but can't move until X3 touches the puck).
  • X3 must make a wall play and deliver the puck to X1 before X1 and X3 can attack 2v1 against X2.
  • In the second rep, you will do the same thing, but X2 and X3 reverse their roles, with X2 becoming an offensive player.


  • Gaining possession of the puck off the boards.
  • Making a good pass after gaining possession
  • Getting into defensive positioning quickly.
  • Playing 2v1 in a tight area.
