Improve Your Passing Game:

Nine Words to Improve Your Passing Game:


Any time you want the puck, pass the puck, it is your responsibility to skate, move & talk with your team mates. Your team mates need to know you are available for a pass. Communication leads to better vision, passing and more goals!

Seven Key to Receiving Passes:
  • See the puck
  • Call for the puck
  • Your stick needs to be out in front of your body
  • Your stick needs to be on the ice
  • Your stick needs to form a right angle when receiving pass
  •  Skate to the puck, do not stop skating and reach
  •  Use skates, body and hands to receive bad passe

  • Control Skate, Communicate & Accelerate

Power Questions:

 Are your players making the most of the space? 
Move the Puck - Use the full width of the rink!  The puck moves faster than any player so get your players to look up and move the puck to a team-mate in space to stretch the opposition!
Players need to learn to move the puck to open space. 
  • Soft pass to open space
  • No space pass boards
  • Board passes

Power Thoughts:

The receivers are an integral part of the passing game.
