Good advice from Slade-further on that line, skate diagonally 45* up ice when your team is "breaking out". I like drills where kids criss cross and hit forward man with lead pass.
Basic horse shoe drill teaches players to receive pass on the fly and gives passer practise on timing pass so its in front/stick side of player receiving the pass. Good variation once thats mastered is to have players carry puck out of D zone corner, hit man just as he comes out of 'curl' on the fly. Better than passer just standing with puck, gets them used to timing passes while skating.
Passer of course then skates to blue line in other end, curls and takes a pass (in case someone isn't familiar with horse shoe drill) great drill, ends with shot on net so goalies also involved.
