Deke Of the Week 5 – Double Deke

double deke

by Jeremy Rupke on April 22, 2011

Last week we all learned about the single deke which involves a simple fake to one side, and then beating the player on the other side. Sometimes the player does not bite on your first fake, so you might need to toss in a second one, that is where the double deke comes in! In this video I show you how to do the double deke, what you will need to practice to perfect the move, and when the best time is to use it. One situation I forgot to mention in the video is to use this move to split the D. If there are two defencemen you skate to the center of them, fake towards one, then fake towards the other, then bust through both of them, it doesn’t work every time but I have pulled it off a few times.

Double Deke Video

In This Video

  • Fake to one side, fake to the other side, then beat the player on the side you faked to originally
  • To make it really convincing toss in a head fake and shoulder fake
  • You can modify the move by really selling it, or just moving the puck quickly to one side, to the other, then back to the other side.
  • Good lateral puck movement is VERY important, so practice at home with your green biscuit and your hockey shooting pad
  • Make sure you start the move early enough to keep out of the players stick zone and avoid the poke check
  • The best time to use this move is while the player is coming at you, or stopped or skating slowly backwards
pass the puck

Hi Harrison,
I’ve heard alot about you as a player, you should just tie your skates a litlte tighter, and then you can become a better skater. You are a really hard worker, keep it up!
