Shooting in Slow MotionDecember 12, 2012
This video is a great look at the importance putting all you have into your shooting. If you want maximum power, try to get a lot of whip, or bend on your stick. When you do this you are maximizing your power because as your stick "unwinds" it releases more power into the shot. If you were to shoot the puck without much whip in your stick, your shot is limited to the amount of power you put into the shot. It's PHYSICS!! Don't ask us how it works....we are not scientists :-). Trust all those NHL guys who know how to get the most out of their sticks.
This weeks challenge - practicing "leaning into" your shots in practice. It may feel funny at first, but it will pay off in harder shots down the road.
