xDangler Pro: Backhand Drag Optimization

In one of the last times we worked with the xDangler Pro, we showed you how a backhand drag, forehand drag could be properly executed. This time, we are leaving it to a backhand drag throughout the drill.

The backhand drag is often used in games — you just may not realize it. When you are coming in on a defender, your first reaction is to pull the puck back and closer to your body to avoid a poke check or the defender to use his or her leg to block the puck from entering the zone.

Since this is a move you often use (or if you aren’t, something you should begin utilizing), why not perfect it? With the help of Sergei Simonov and the xDangler Pro, I took to the rink to show you how to improve your backhand drag move.

As you can see, this is another stationary drill to try with the xDangler Pro.

As you run through the drill, test yourself by speeding up the xDangler Pro, as well as your execution of the stickhandling. The faster you move and the slicker you become, the more dangerous you will become on the rink.
