The adjustment will be in taking shots, mostly slapshots. You will have to bend in the knees a little more to get into a shot but don't give up if you go out there and whiff on your slapshot your first time out like I did because now that I've adjusted my slapshot is more powerful because I get so much more push into it from getting low in my shots.
THIS. The first time out with the shorter stick I whiffed so bad on the shot that I ended up on my back.
