Yes, I sometimes use a technique that I call the "half slap shot". You have to place your hands the same way you would do for a normal slap shot, but you don't raise the stick more than a foot off the ice (slightly below the knee). You can get up to 80% of your slap shot's power, and the release is much quicker. If you're at the top of the circle or closer, you can catch a few goalies off guard with that one.
