Long HorseShoe

A good warm up drill to get the feet moving, and practice good passes "on the tape"

Out of opposite corners players skate across the far blue line and loop up ice (towards boards) and then skate around low cone and up the opposite side of the rink again curling towards the boards just after the blueline. At this point the opposite corner forward gives an outlet pass to the looping player. After getting the pass, the player heads in 1vs0 for a quality shot. The passer follows his pass and skates the pattern for his outlet pass.

Once the looping player recives his pass he drops the pass for the passing player leaving the corner. That player then returns the pass quickly before the leadman reaches the blue line.

Thanks to Malcolm for the drill
