Slapshot's are effective, especially accurate one-timers. There's no faster or harder release than a one-timer. Goalies also have a harder time controlling rebounds from bullets.

Don't try to kill it when learning. Slow it down (practicing) & develop the 'feel' of weight transfer, blade contact etc.

Keep a wide grip, about double the length from your elbow to the center of your hand. Learn with a wide stance. Close the blade on wind-up, lean into the shot, press down with your lower arm on the down swing & pull with your upper, hit the ice before the puck & follow through with your swing.
