Have players line-up in opposite corners below the hash marks. Put 2 bundles of pucks in each corner. X1 and X3 start the drill without the puck. The drill is run simultaneously out of the 2 corners. Goalies are in the net ready for a shot from the slot.
X1 (and X3) starts the drill by skating around the top half of the face-off circle. X2 makes a short pass to X1 (X4 does the same to X3). X1 (and X3) takes a shot on net. After the shot X1 (and X3) skates into the corner around the bottom of the other face-off circle. X2 (X4 does the same to X3) makes a long pass to X1. X1 (and X3) skates with the puck along the boards and takes a long shot from the blueline.
KEY TEACHING POINTS
Players need to work on passing to where the player is going. Players need to work on quick shots from the slot and long shots from the blueline.
Goalies need to react to close range shots and long shots from the blueline.
