can you add on to this vid some tips for a right handed shooter playing on the left wing?
I see kids have trouble with this all the time.
How about the same video for the winger playing his opposite wing.
What’s worse, I see coaches put left handed shooters on the left wing?!
I teach all of those but in todays Hockey I also teach the back to D man with the stick up against the board. This is a more dangerous and advanced way but can be quicker if you have a team that pinches with aggressive pinching. The player needs to be wary of the pressure and have a solid stance ready for a hit. One of the things I have noticed is you can get more hit from behind penalties with this variation. This is not a technique I would teach to any player under the Bantam A age and skill level. Bantam AA, AAA is where I would start. It bascially skips the one step that Kevin shows for of the glass forhand.
