Shot Power Tips

HockeyShot Pro Tip of the Week
There are not too many players in the NHL that would dive in front of a shot from Shea Weber or Zdeno Chara, and we don’t blame them. What makes them such a threat is their ability to power a shot through to the net.
To have a powerful shot, there are a few things a hockey player needs to consider. The most important component of having a powerful shot is the stance of the hockey player. Keep in mind, you need to have a relaxed stance and can transfer your weight from one foot to the other. A good rule of thumb is to have your nose go from toe-to- toe. Secondly, you want to have a strong push off your back foot and step toward your intended target. Keeping that in mind, it’s imperative that the mechanics of
the shot and the stride are in one cohesive, fluid movement. Lastly, like the quick release, shot location is key to having a strong shot. As a hockey player, everyone is different, which makes it that much more important to find and be familiar with your “sweet spot”. Basically, your “sweet spot” is the location
where you are most comfortable to release your shot, and often is the spot that allows you to have your most powerful shot. Like any other skill, practice is the only way to improve so take lots of shots.
