Penalty Kill Forecheck Angling Drill

The Penalty Kill Forecheck Angling Drill works really well to teach proper angling technique for F1 & F2 on the PK forecheck. Here’s the diagram and explanation:

Penalty Kill Forecheck Angling Drill

1. Breakout man skates in, and opens up to either side for a breakout pass from the coach
2. F1 and F2 angle to take away the skating lane and passing lanes, respectively
3. If F1 and F2 fail to eliminate the breakout, the breakout man passes to the NZ coach for a give and go, and a shot on net

Note: This drill can be run as a 2/3 ice drill by eliminating the option for a shot on goal. Play would end with the pass back to the NZ coach

Enjoy!
