Whip One on One
The focus of this drill is to contain the forwards from a tough situation. The set up of this drill puts the defense at a dis-advantage. Set up the drill as shown in the diagram. The spacing of the players may need to be adjusted after you run a few reps so that defense are coming out of their transition equal with the forwards. The forwards should have a good speed when they receive the puck and drive to the outside towards the near post.
Quick Turn Up 2 on 1
The way this 2 on 1 drill is set up it forces the players into a situation that players often find in games. The first situation is a quick transition and then quickly develops into a 2 on 1 using half the width of the ice, a situation that is common on the rush in 3 on 2 situations. Regardless of how you are teaching your players to react to 2 on 1, both offensively and defensively, this drill presents a great situation.
