If he's been playing for a while, then something similar to what he's used to would probably be best, rather than just going with the pattern that works for you.
That's what I use now. I learned how to shoot a puck on a Sakic, and used it until a few months ago. I picked up a PM9 and my shots seem much more accurate, just as hard, just as high, and both my backhand and passing is 100% better. The only difference: My stationary (Practicing) slap shots won't come up, but my one timers and dynamic (Skating while shooting) slap shots are unaffected.
