Drag and Shoot
No more blocked shots with this skill!
Changing the release angle to shoot around defenders can be the difference between a blocked shot or a goal.
- Pull puck in towards body with toe of the blade
- Eyes up before puck leaves blade
- Apply downward pressure on the stick to create flex
- Lean forward and towards the target
