It took me about a year to get a decent back hand. It took loads of practice skating backwards down the boards with the puck on my backhand and shoot, shoot, shoot until my shoulders ached for the next two days and working on nothing other than my back hand during that days stick and puck.

The big trick I learned once I got a bit of power behind my backhand was to handle the puck on the backhand just the same as you would on the forehand (You know cup the puck with the blade of the stick and roll it up the blade to get lift.) by no means am I saying I'm a good shot but I know understand the mechanics of the back hand (now I need to get the muscle memory so I do it the same way every time)
