Apparently wrists aren't really worked on.

Mike Heika wrote a thing on Jagr's training techniques. One of which was using weights on his stick to strengthen his wrists and forearms.

Stars winger Jaromir Jagr just turned 41, but his unique take on training methods is spreading throughout the team. Here are three things he likes to do that teammates have followed:

Weighted stick: Jagr takes a barbell weight and places it on the blade of his stick, then works the stick back and forth to build strength in his wrists and forearms. Player reaction: “My wrists hurt after a minute, so I’m sure it works.” — defenseman Brenden Dillon.
Brendan Dillon is also really good at hockey. I wish TB would have gotten him.

Marek vs. Wyshynski had Heika on about two weeks back where he gave some more details on it.
