The key to blocking shots is proper body rotation. Over or under rotating will leave unprotected parts of your body exposed. Also you should not be blocking shots with your chest since the trajectory and distance is such that the puck would have gone over the net if untouched.
Also you should block shots properly if going down and extending your legs. Head to the boards
NOT TO THE CENTER
of the ice:
In the video above, Trent McCleary blocks the shot with his throat because his head is to the center of the ice.Almost died. Head to the boards and his padded legs absorb the shot with ease.
