Reactive Around The World

This drill variation works on on-ice recoveries from shots in the slot area. 

Focus on good form first, then speed up the drill. Speedy/quick pivots, full pushes. Beat the shooter and get your body and hands on top of the puck. 

Shooter starts below the hash in the center. Shooter shoots when he wants, so we can’t anticipate much and have to react to the shot. Do not alternate sides continuously. Make the shooter pick whatever side he wants to shoot up. This is the added reactive recovery element.

1. First shot is on the ice to either stick side.

2. Player rushes in to chip puck #2 to try and beat the goalie. 

3. Player tries to chip a puck in at a bad angle.

4. Player continues, takes puck behind the net and either: jams for a wrap, pops up and spins back and shoots short side, or walks all the way across the front of the net and crease to the far post.

1/2. Good rebound, then get a quick/full pivot out of your butterfly, lead with hands, bring your back leg in fast to get a full slide.

3. Recover back inside the post to rvh seal, need a big quick pivot here.

4. Post to post using windows, then adjust our depth and squareness depending on what option he picks on the last shot.

Note: Start slow, when the technique is right speed up push the pace. Don’t square up to much in the wrap right away, or you’ll get burned if he drives in front of the wrap. Timing and positioning are sensitive in this drill.
