You are alone at the top of the slot.  Your teammate gives you a perfect pass and you have a split-second to decide...how am I getting the puck into the net?  Snapshot, wrist shot, slap shot, fake to a backhand?  Below is a great article on practicing all of those so you can shoot to score.

There is a lot to love about this article from USAHockey.com.  First, it gives great tips for getting shots off.  Second, it is a great reminder that every player needs a variety of shot choices to use in a game.  Third, it references NHL skills coach, and Hockeytown regular, Paul Vincent.

Check out the article here.

Plus, here is a quick video on an under-used shot, the backhand wrist shot.
