Has the level of competition increased from last year to this year?
Your conversation with your coach should be about what you can do to get back on track. I wouldn't even mention the decreased ice time.
One thing you could try is going to a pick up game and playing a different role on the ice to see if that snaps you out of your funk. Maybe borrow a friends goalie gear and play goalie for a night.
First of all, thank you for answering.
The competition level has decreased significantly, we win most of our games by a lopsided score (we have 80 goals for and 14 goals against). My coaches want me to work on releasing the puck faster. They say I would eat goalies alive if I could get my wrist shot off quickly.
The thing I'd like to try to get back to scoring a lot of goals is shooting from farther out. My coach suggested to fire a hard, low and screened wrister from the blue line. I have surprised goalies twice this year shooting from well out.
Playing goalie isn't a great idea, I fear the puck a bit.
