Grenade Shot

Aug. 24, 2020 at 1:18 p.m. MDT

"Grenade Shot", forces player to control loose pucks quickly and release to score. The coach or a teammate begins with ten pucks in their hands/arm. The coach drops/throws a puck on the ice and makes it bounce. The awaiting player traps the puck as quickly as possible and releases a shot on the goaltender. The coach throws the puck close to the feet, on the forehand/backhand etc., thus forcing the player to shoot from all different positions. Rotate players every 10 shots.

Teaching Points

Shooting: Trap the puck quickly and release without a big back swing/takeaway. Adjust to the puck quickly with body position to release. Shot preparation and adjustment is as important as the actual shot. Look to the target as quickly as possible when shooting the puck.
