In this edition of Chalk-Talk, we look at a handling the puck when skating at top speed.
The drills in this series put players in situations that they will encounter in games – this presents the players with the opportunity to create, problem-solve, read and react and to use the technical skills, tactics and concepts they have learned in practice.
Today, we are going to look at how to handle the puck in open ice at top speed. The most important thing to remember is to eliminate unnecessary stickhandling and underhandle the puck!
Underhandling is a key skill for players to learn in order to maintain speed and also allows the player to keep their eyes up to read the play around them.
