The Post-Knee-Up save is a controversial but solid selection, when used correctly The Post knee up save is a controversial yet solid selection. It is controversial because most goalies do not always use it in the correct situations. This particular drill will work on the Post Knee up as well as work on teaching the goaltender to read and react and utilize the save in the correct situation.

High-Low Shooting is a Good Warm-up Drill for Everyone Here's another great hockey drill that I like to use particularly as a warm-up drill. It is quick-paced, and incorporates skating, stickhandling, and shooting in stride. It's also great for goalies as it gets them moving side-to-side. Players must keep their heads up as they explode through the middle of the ice in opposite directions. Stress that the players keep their feet moving throughout the entire drill. Here's the diagram and explanation: High-Low Shooting 1. Players are divided into 4 corners with pucks. 2. All 4 lines leave at the same time on the whistle. 3. Short lines go to first set of cones. 4. Long lines go to middle set of cones. 5. Players skate full speed through the cones,…
