Now we’re going to show you how to hold and
use the stick. First off is our basic grip, with our index finger pointing outward, the
other three fingers and thumb wrapped around the part of the stick where the largest section
meets the thinner section.
Now we’re going to show you how to properly pass the puck or shoot the puck. Now we’re
going to show you how to break up some passes that are coming across the net. You can extend
your stick out using one hand and keeping your stick flat against the ice or almost
against the ice to break up a pass.
Also, it can be used just to make a save if you want to hit it in the corner, kind of
like using your blocker. And that’s how to use the stick.

    only use it if you know a potential one timers coming from the other side of the crease, it may set up a shot outfront but stopping a shot straight ahead is easier than trying to get your butterfly slide across fast enough to block the one timer, but you defintely want to try to move the puck to an area where it would be difficult to get a good shot away, either the corners, or away from potential shooters

    depends what type of style you play. How many times a week you would play, what level of hockey and how tall are you, Also how much do you want to spend? dont worry even if you dont want to spend alot you can still get a decent set of pads.

    dear beginners: don't take your stick out of position just to break up a POTENTIAL pass; it's a recipe for a sure 5-hole goal. If the pass comes close enough where you can poke it away naturally, then do it. But don't make a special effort to do it because you'll get burned.

    @coldwind777 I've heard of smith pads, but that was a long time ago, never said they sucked. Your reading what you want to hear.

    @Draker73 you never said it, but you implied by listing it as a reason why this video must be low budget and crappy.

    @Draker73 I'm well aware it sucks. What does that have anything to do with the fact that the goalie has Smith pads? He could be wearing custom V4's or last year's 5K's and it wouldn't make this video any better or worse. The brand of his pads literally has nothing to do with how bad this video is.

    wow these aren't even puck handling tips. anyone could pick up a stick and "push" the puck 15 feet on clean ice. And don't even get me started on "Intercepting passes". Lol the goalie is cheating, he already has his stick out waiting for the pass. This isnt going to 'teach' anyone. Anyways, expertvillage never fails to fail me.

    The only thing i'm having trouble with as a goalie is dumping the puck. Being an inline goalie I can LAUNCH the puck but switching to ice I just kinda do a little saucer pass. Any tips on how to improve the dumps?

    Its risky because your on the post u leave a bunch of space open and if you dont block the shot there is a chance of scoring
