All right, another shot that you might want
to try in your arsenal. Maybe not for you young kids, keep it to the wrist shot and
the snap shot, but as you get older you can definitely try the slap shot. It’s a great
shot. A lot of defensemen use it. Basically what you’re going to do. Same as the wrist
shot and snap shot. You’re pulling your body weight. You’re keeping your hand down halfway,
maybe a little bit more, maybe a little less, just preference. You’re going to pull it back.
Pull the stick all the way up and then follow through. Then you’re going to point and all
your weight’s going to be on your front foot and just point to where you’re going to shoot
it. Let me show you. I was aiming for the post. That’s a slap shot basically. Don’t
hit the post though. Try and get it in the net.

    well a slap shot is to do with the flex in your stick, when it hits the ice it whips the stick then hits the puck, and seeing as he is heavy he will have more weight to flex the stick and he will have a lower sense of graverty which means he can balance easier and all in all its good, but bad for your body to overweight

    The way I take a slap shot is shoulders square to the puck with the puck in line with my front foot. As I follow through I transfer my weight forward to flex the stick and then I finish by closing the stick blade and transferring weight all the way to front leg.

    @Sugarpuff4Fluff I ain't perfect, but this is ridiculous. Trust me, I shoot and skate better than this over-weight wannabe. At least the teacher should've played hockey in a league or something. U should check out some of Alex Kovalev's clips. Now, that man can skate and shoot and is qualified to teach.

    Not a bad shot when I watched you do it but as for the teaching part you missed a few important points. Your hand shouldn't start half way down the stick, but it should slide down as you wind up. Also bring it straight up on the wind up, not out like a golf swing. Your stick should hit the ice just before the puck, knees bent, and transfer your weight from your back leg to front. Its a hard shot to master, even I'm not that good at it

    ok no offence m8 but i play juniors under 18s and my shots twice as hard as yours, second of all your a big guy i didn't see any weight transfer in that shot why dont u challenge urself and shoot from the further back that was way to close and try to get a nice saucer on the puck
