Sauve has been working on his shot a lot. He has an incredible shot though. His wrister can easily hit 90 mph and his slapper is in the high 90s. Accuracy can be an issue with his slapper (but that is what he has been working on), though his wrist one timers can be very effective. Keep in mind, his coach last year did nothing to help him get shots through, so he often shot at the guy in front of him; whereas, this year, most of his shots have gotten by the first guy.
