What weight exercises are best for improving your shot power on wrist shot and slap shots?

A good one I like is to use a cut up stick about 2 ft long, attach a rope about shoulder length long, and on the other end attach a weight. Then with your arms extended, rolling your wrists, bring the weight up. Usually a couple reps of this and your forearms will be burning.

I agree completely. I personally use a round piece of wood about two feet long. I would add that you can really do the repetitions four ways: with palms up and palms down and then twisting the piece of wood (and raising and lowering the weight) both towards and away from you.

Taking wrist shots with a weighted puck in the garage!
