iHockeyTrainer & Michael Henrich - Tips To Shooting a Puck - Daily Advice, Drills, & Exercises from The Pros - Canada, USA, Europe

Edmonton Oilers - NHL - 1st Round NHL Pick & Notable Goal Scorer Michael Henrich shares some of his key tips how to shoot a puck.

 

  

 

Michael Henrich:  Some Keys To Shooting & Scoring Goals

 

 
When shooting a puck, 3 important points to remember are:
 
  • Place the puck where you recognize that there is an opening in the net, this will require you to have your head up.
  • Be skating at full speed so the goalie will not be given as much time to adjust to where you are shooting.
  • Use your legs to allow for your shot to explode with speed and power off your stick. Using your lower body to shoot increases your shot precision and velocity.
 
Shooting Practice Tip For Hockey
 
Practice your shot starting with you legs just beyond shoulder width apart, or a position within this area that feels comfortable to you. Bend your knees and as you pull the puck back to prepare for a forward shot your leg movement should mirror the motion of a side squat.  As you explode forward be aware that your legs are helping you increase your power on your shot.
 
iHockeyTrainer's Daniel Tkaczuk:
 
The emphasis that Michael places on the use of your legs to create velocity is key.  As an example, take a pitcher in baseball.  You always hear that a pitcher that throws hard has a great 'arm'.   However, when you watch them throw a baseball from the mound they use their legs to drive the power to the arm.  A hockey shot is no different.
