Set up four cones in a diamond formation. Three defensive players start in the middle and five offensive players surround the cones. The object is to move the puck around passing through the coned-off areas and through the defenders to a teammate. Change the game up using only on-ice passes and then only flip or saucer passes. After three pucks have been cleared (one at a time) change it up.
