I started playing recreational hockey in the last couple years after many years off. When I played junior, I was a scorer, and had a fairly decent shot.

But since I have come back to playing, the shot is still strong, but the accuracy has gone to pot. For some reason, a too high percentage of all my shots are about six inches outside either post.

I was thinking that I might be using a stick longer than I used to? Trying to hard to shoot with velocity?

Any thoughts?
A longer stick will give you more velocity, but make it tougher to handle the puck and also control your shot.

Do you find that you're always missing in one direction ???
