This drill will help the goaltender with his poke checks, desperate saves as well as passing.

 

Set up five pucks around the crease as shown below ( one at the centre of the ice, two at the bottom of each circle, and two behind the net). A shooter should be positionned near each circle face-off dot, as well as one in the high slot.

The goaltender first pokechecks one of the pucks before making a diving (or 2-pad slide) to the opposite end of his crease to make a save. He then gets up and poke checks the puck on that side of the crease before making another diving (or 2-pad slide) save at the other end of his crease. The goaltender then gets up and poke checks the centre puck and immediately stops a shot from the centre shooter. He then skates behind his net and makes a pass to the shooter located at the near hash marks. The goaltender then passes the puck on the other side of the net to the other shooter.
