Chip To Speed

Over the years the game of hockey hasn’t changed much but some terms certainly have. I came across this drill and wanted to show it to you all. We used to do this drill all the time in our practices, a simple ‘Chip and Go’ drill but hey it’s 2013 now so……

Anyway Coach Nye still thinks it’s one of the better drills to do, so lets take a look.

The modern game is about speed and learning how to “feed the speed.” The purpose of this drill is to create a realistic game situation in which players learn to “chip” the puck or make an indirect pass off the boards to an area so that a player, who is coming from the weak side away from the puck with speed, can pick up the puck.
