I hope you guys know what I'm talking about.. I couldn't find any videos to demonstrate it. Watch an NHL game and you'll see guys do it fairly regularly.
My question is: can anyone actually do this? If so, how can I learn to? I don't have the flexibility to do it, but I'm not sure exactly what to stretch or how to practice.
Is this while carrying the puck? To maintain leverage somehow?
