Power Play Breakouts and Double Double With a Drop

This is an excerpt from The Hockey Drill Book, Second Edition by Dave Chambers.

411 Power Play Breakouts 5v0, 5v2, 5v3, 5v4


To begin, the coach shoots the puck into the corner. The five players for the power play team are on the blue line. The five players then break out using one of the following patterns. Once they go into the offensive zone, they pass the puck to the defense, make one play, and change. The drill progresses 5v2 (two defensemen only), 5v3 (two defensemen plus one forward), 5v4 (two defensemen plus two forwards), and the breakout is against the penalty killers.


Sequence 1: Double-Swing Breakout

  1. Forward 1 and defenseman 2 swing to opposite corners.
  2. Forward 2 skates across the ice at the near blue line.
  3. Forward 3 skates across at the far blue line.
  4. Defenseman 1 has the puck behind the net.


Sequence 2: Double Double-Swing Breakout

  1. Forward 1 and defenseman 2 swing to one corner.
  2. Forwards 2 and 3 swing to the other corner.
  3. Defenseman 1 has the puck behind the net.


Sequence 3: Double-Swing (One Side) Breakout

  1. Defenseman 2 and forward 1 swing to one corner.
  2. Forward 2 skates across the ice at the near blue line.
  3. Forward 3 skates across at the far blue line.
  4. Defenseman 1 stops behind the net with the puck.


Sequence 4: Forwards Cross Double-Swing Breakout

  1. Forwards 2 and 3 skate back from behind the center line, loop around, and cross.
  2. Defenseman 2 swings to one corner.
  3. Forward 1 swings to the opposite corner.
  4. Defenseman 1 skates behind the net with the puck (without stopping).


Sequence 5: Double-Swing Behind-the-Net Breakout

  1. Defenseman 1 stops behind the net with the puck.
  2. Forward 1 swings behind the net, followed by forward 2.
  3. Defenseman 2 swings to the opposite corner.
  4. Forward 3 skates across the ice at the center line.


Sequence 6: Swing and Drop

  1. Forward 1 skates behind the net and gets a puck from defenseman 1.
  2. Forward 2 stays high and comes across the ice at the far blue line.
  3. Defenseman 2 and forward 3 skate down the outside. Forward 3 cuts across at the far blue line, and defenseman 2 goes straight down the boards.
  4. Forward 1 drops the puck back to defenseman 1 and then skates across and down the far side of the rink.
  5. Defenseman 1 passes to forward 1 to enter the offensive zone. Defenseman 1 can also pass to forward 3, forward 2, or defenseman 2 to enter the zone.













412 Sequence 7 Double Double With a Drop

  1. Forwards 1 and 2 swing to the left and should be left-handed shots.
  2. Forward 3 should be a right-handed shot and swings to the right with defenseman 2.
  3. Defenseman 1 skates up the ice and drop passes the puck to forward 1.
  4. Forward 3 keeps at the same speed and in line with forward 1 and also should be available for a pass from forward 1.
  5. Defenseman 2 cuts to the middle between the center line and the far blue line.
  6. Forward 1 can pass to either side, pass up the middle, or carry over the blue line.
