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?
Something you might try as well is checking out the finish of your shot. The stick should be pointing at your target on the follow through. Sometimes you just have to go back to the basics and work on muscle memory. Tendency of most is to blame the equipment. I'm not saying that equipment isn't important, it doesn't matter how big your driver is without the proper technique your not going to hit the fairway. A hockey shot is the same as a golf shot. The finishing is the key to accuracy.
