In this drill, the goalie will receive three shots, all from the same place on the ice. The focus of the drill is on watching the puck into the goalies body, making a save while controlling the rebound to a safe location on the ice.
Shooters should take care to shoot the pucks in a place where the goalie can control the rebound effectively. If you’re using players as shooters, ensure that they are aware of this as more often than not they’ll try to shoot for a tight corner. The drill is to warm up the goalie, to work their eyes, and get them ready for a long practice.
