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:
