Had my first practice/scrimmage before the season. Moving back to D this year. We played against a team two levels higher than us...it was a gongshow.

Had a sweet goal though. My D partner tied up a guy in our crease and the puck slid loose, I went end to end and deked around three guys, took a VERY rare slapper in motion from the left faceoff circle, and beat the goalie top shelf glove side. Now I've beat goalies high glove several times with snappers from the blue line, but I've probably only scored on a couple slappers in my life. Very proud of that one.

I started golfing a couple months ago and I think that's been helping with my slapper. I can make a much better hip rotation and the "hitch" at the top of my backswing is decreasing.
