  • X1 starts in front of the net with the coach at the top of the circle, and X2 is on the wall at the top of the circle.
  • The coach shoots on the net, and X1 tries to tip or redirect the puck past the goalie.
  • After the tip or redirection, X2 rings the puck along the boards. As that happens, X1 goes around the net and retreives the puck off the boards before wrapping to the net to try and beat the goalie.


  • Tipping and deflecting shots.
  • Working on possessing the puck off the board and then quickly moving with it to the net.
