The secret to a good wrist shot is weight transfer.

If you are shooting lefty, then lean all of your weight onto your left foot and then kick your back foot up, and transfer your weight into the shot.

Watch Joe Sakic shoot to see an example of what I mean.

You can also crouch down on one knee (bent leg never touches the ice/dek) and transfer your weight this way..sort of like loading a spring.

Watch Kovalev take a wrist shot for an example of this kind of wrist shot.

I suggest practicing both kind of releases..it can really give a goalie fits when you change up your release.
