IDK if anyone has seen this or not, but this is CRAZY! I can see this being useful in certain game situations, but IDK if I could ever do it myself......

That is interesting ... I can flip a one handed backhand pass like that but not with that kind of air as a shot on goal. That is just craziness.

I've seen Bertuzzi do it before in a game. It was Bertuzzi so, he didn't score...but I was pretty impressed with the velocity he got with one hand on the stick while trying not to fall over.

You need forearms like popeye...or Kovalev.

Usually when I get the one handed goals it's just the deke where the goalie thinks there's no way you can make it back to the other side, then you move the puck to the open side of the net, reach back with one hand and tap the puck in.

I am assuming that to do this you need to work your wrists and forearms a lot, and practice a lot. I tried it and it's even tougher than it looks in the video.

I am going to video myself doing this. There is technique involved.

Not to sound like a naysayer, but if he's using one of those superlight composites, would this really be that hard?

Obviously it would still take alot of forearm strength, but I'd imagine that it would be much more impressive to do so with a woodie than a featherweight composite...

Perhaps, but it's still pretty damn hard with a composite- the main resistance to the movement is the puck, not the stick.

But for the OP's question, you can do it if you shoot dominant hand on top and go backhand. That's just the way your wrist works best. It's possible dominant hand on bottom too, but most don't strengthen their weak wrist enough to pull it off.

And it's nearly impossible forehand.

yes please do! I'm sure more than just strength is needed.

even still, its impressive regardless of what hand you use. I would think if you could get really good at it and worked it into a deke it would be really amazing and useful

Go try it. I'll do it for kicks a few times at stick and puck, and will at best get the puck 2-3 inches off the ice.

The last time I did it my wrist hurt for about a day afterwards, though.

I won't lie, it's effing tough. I've gotten it almost a foot in the air doing that before. It's about being at the right angle and keeping yourself square, using the arm as a lever and getting lucky

I do this all the time, usually right after I get finished bench pressing 400lbs.

Use a short enough stick and it's a piece of cake! (think mini stick)

That actually makes tons of sense ... I tried it today with my longer than most stick and got nowhere. I had a few minutes of ice before we played and tried it for the hell of it.
