How to Practice Changing Your Shooting Angle

Auston Matthews may be one of the best in the league at changing the angle before he shoots. Just look at this snipe where he fools the defense and goalie in one motion.

Here’s a great video that explains why changing your shooting angle is so important and how you can practice it at home and on the ice.

Textbook “Gagner” Move

Artem Zub, a defenseman for the Ottawa Senators, scores his first NHL goal with a textbook example of the “Gagner” move.

Fake wrist shot off the inside foot, then fake to the backhand with a finish on the forehand. When you really need to score, it is great to have a go to move.

Sample Recruiting Video

Some of you have been asking what a good highlight video looks like to send to University recruiters. Here’s a good example.

A few key points:

  1. It includes contact information.
  2. It includes some practice drills that show off your skill.
  3. It makes it easy for the viewer to tell which player you are.

The first step is to start collecting highlight clips of your play. Until you have some game clips start with some practice video.

Can you do the one knee stickhandling drill at the start of the video?
