- wrist shot along the ice bottom corners. our goalie told us one time that when he sees someone pulling back a wrist shot he assumes top cheese. how many guys really take wrist shots along the ice.
- shortside this works wonders on 2 on ones because that goalie is playing the pass wether he admits it or not. he cheats you look pass then fire shortside.
So true! lol
I played goalie from age 10-28, my gosh, that first year, I got burnt like crazy on the ice. I have seen some crazy moves, but with each year I grew in the position, goalie was really all about the training and practice for me. I found I played the most consistent on shots when I was just not thinking about it, save, ok time to think again.
Now that I am getting older, I am playing as a forward. I will tell you one thing, I feel my on ice vision has gotten that much better thanks to goal-tending forever.
My favorite shots:
-1 foot off the ice towards the blocker post.
-Short side (short side top shelf against the one knee down post huggers).
-Forehand fake to the back hand, bite city right there.
-Hard wrister or snap on the ice.
-anything on the backhand really, not many people have a decent backhand.
