Is deaking something a team should practice?


No deaking in practice! Shoot the puck! Very seldom do forwards actually have a breakaway and so seldom that your goalie will face them (you hope). Make your players shoot during the drills since it is more applicable to a game situation.

I disagree with this because goalies have to be able to move back and fourth. If someone does get a breakaway that does happen 1-4 times in a high school game they wont expect it because in PRACTICE noone does it. So i would shoot alot more in practie but once in a while i would do some dekes. On breakaways more people deke than shoot.
