SCORING - 1-ON-0 ENTRIES

Setup and execution: Players start at the blue-line, lined up towards the corner. They skate towards middle of ice, turn towards the boards, pass the puck off the wall and retrieve. Finally, they skate across blue-line at full speed, put a move on the obstacle and take a shot on goal.

Key teaching points:

  • Quick feet on crossovers when turning to boards.
  • Pick up puck in full stride.
  • Full speed across blue-line.
  • Head up, be creative with moves, followed by quick shot.

New for this season, the drills available through the Hockey Canada Network have been enhanced – in addition to a diagram and written explanation, each drill includes a video showing how it works, and a clip showing exactly how the drill can be beneficial in a game situation.

The Network app allows coaches to filter through hundreds of drills, select which ones they want for practice, and share the drills with their team. Players and other coaches can now step on the ice already knowing what the drills look like, meaning that less time is spent explaining, and more time can be spent practicing.

At the start of every month, Drills of the Month will be posted on the Hockey Canada Network for coaches of every level. The drills will be shared through teams within the Network; follow the instructions below to join a team.

If you already have a Hockey Canada Network account, select the link that corresponds to your program level to join and receive the Drills of the Month. You can join as many teams as you would like.
