This week’s video covers the basic technique of the one-timer shot. One-timers are excellent for creating fast scoring opportunities and not giving the goaltender a chance to set prior to the shot.

Key Teaching Points

  • Puck should be shot similar to a slap shot, located between the middle of your feet and the back foot
  • Hands just over shoulder-width apart (this will vary based on the degree of knee bend and “sitting” in to your shot)
  • Transfer the weight to the back leg
  • Low stance on the shot motion, transferring your weight to your front foot
  • Open your hips and front foot toward your target
  • Be prepared (and practice) adjusting your stance to accomodate for passes slightly off target
Example from the NHL:

This week’s video discusses the basics of passing and receiving on the forehand.

Passing Key Teaching Points

  • With beginners, start with feet perpendicular to the target
  • Puck on the middle of the blade
  • Bring puck behind the back foot, slightly cupping the puck
  • Head up, look at your target
  • Push the puck forward in a straight line, transferring weight from the back leg to the front leg
  • Open your hips as you transfer the weight
  • Point your stick directly at the target on your follow through
  • Follow through low to the ice
Receiving Key Teaching Points
  • Start with blade flat on the ice and not angled
  • Blade should be parallel to the passing stick for optimal control
  • Blade should start about 6″ inside your front foot if feet are perpendicular to passer
  • Catch the puck in the middle of your stick blade
  • Absorb the impact of the puck by having a slight give (only a few inches) to the stick
  • Avoid un-necessary stickhandles before moving the puck again
