This is a simple shot redirection drill which is extremly helpful for many goaltenders. It helps the goaltender use correct technique and timing in order to redirect shots into the corners.


The goaltender starts at the top of his crease facing X1. X1 takes a shot and the goaltender must redirect it into the corners.

Note: the pucks should come often and fast. Vary the direction of the shots (some going toward the centre, others going towards the corners of the net). This will force the goaltender to adapt to where the shot is heading instead of always directing it in the same corner.

  • Have the goaltender stay in the butterfly position and redirect shots using only his stick
  • Have the goaltender start in the butterfly position and transition to a hybrid-butterfly to direct shots in the appropriate corner.
  • Use high shots only - if the shot is on the glove side the goaltender must make the save with his glove and then throw the puck towards the corner. If the shot is on the blocker side, the goaltender can either redirect it in the corner with the blocker or cover it using the glove and the blocker and then throw the puck to one of the corners.
