Puck Handling Training

Here’s a good rainy day puck handling exercise – just use cans at even intervals to create the same effect – but small cans are better when you have to jump over them. Give it a go and get someone to video you and share it :-)

Shooters Illusion – How to See the Net through the Eyes of the Puck

Thanks to Howtochockey.com

Once you know what the puck sees, you will be able to improve your accuracy, notice more scoring opportunities and score more goals. Many hockey players get into the habit of shooting for what they can see, however the puck is down on the ice and – when carried on the shooting side – about 3-4 feet away from the body. This means there is close to a 5 foot difference in the angle from your point of view and the pucks point of view.

Sometimes when you see some net to shoot at, the puck can not actually get to that spot, or when it looks like there is no open spot to shoot, the puck could actually go in. This is known as the shooters illusion as illustrated in the video.

Quick tips to see the net from the eye’s of the puck

  • The closer you get to the net the more pronounced this effect becomes
  • If you can see some net on your shooting side you KNOW the puck can see even more
  • If it looks like there is a lot of mesh on the side opposite of your shooting side it is because the goalie is playing the puck, chances are you cant hit the mesh unless you change the angle or go to your backhand
  • When you get in really close to the net the top of the net might look open, but the goalies pads, glove, or blocker may be in your way

Start seeing the net how the puck does and you will start scoring more goals!
