Hockey Drills - Escape Pass

Skill:    Puck Handling while looking, edge control, stability, tape to tape passing

Purpose:    Increase puck handling skills while escaping an attack. Increase rink awareness to pass the puck back to the defense when in trouble.

Directions:    Skaters line up below the goalie line. At the direction of the leader the first skater in each line quickly skates with a puck up and around the cone. As the skater completes the tight turn and gains control of the puck he makes a pass to the next skater in line.

Variations:    Good station drill. Skate the puck forehand only, backhand only, or with 1 hand. Pass the puck on the forehand or backhand.
