odd-man situation

Purpose: This drill is a game that creates a continous odd-man situation. This situation is rarely taught or practiced therefore this drill is a great way to challenge players.

Description:In mid ice (pictured) or in end zones, a two vs two game is played. Two forwards can "slide" back and forth joining attack. They are neutral players and cannot check or go inside of boundaries. The extra attackers can shoot on net.

Variation; 3vs3, 4vs4

Thanks to Malcolm Sutherland for his weekly drill submissions.
