DEFENSIVE DRILLS"© !!!
Goal: Teach the defenseman to get close to any puckhandler
near the net.
Starting Player Positions: O1 - with the puck in back of the
goal... D1 - in front on the goal waiting for O1 to move.
Drill: When O1 moves, D1 stays within a half-stick length of
O1. Anytime D1 is further from O1 than a half-stick length, then O1
goes for the front of the net.
Variation: O1 and O2 in back of the net... D1 and D2 in front
of the net. O1 passes to O2 with D1 covering O1 and D2 covering O2.
The same half-stick length premise applies between the puckhandler
and the defenseman."
