How to Backhand Topshelf Video

How to backhand topshelf

by Jeremy Rupke on March 4, 2010

This is a video we made that show’s how to backhand topshelf. This backhand video has gotten some good feedback on youtube and shows a skill that too many hockey players ignore. WORK ON YOUR BACKHAND! you will score more goals. I see to many players just shovel the puck into the goalies pad because they haven’t mastered their backhand. If you really want to learn to snipe topshelf on your backhand you could read the article that we wrote to go along with this video How to backhand topshelf we also have another backhand article that is in the related articles section below.

If you can already raise your backhand then I think the biggest point that helps you get it top shelf is in the follow through. If you put a lot of power on your follow through then you will actually guide the puck right where you want it. The harder your follow through on the backhand is, the more time the puck will be on the blade of the stick, and the more time you will have to aim the puck. Check out the video for more tips

I noticed that if you are having trouble veering the puck in the air that it helps to keep the puck closer to the toe of your blade

Hey guys, just wanted to say great site. It has helped me a TON. This video in particular. I’m just starting out, and decided to buy the EZ goal for the garage. Anyways, I have been having trouble getting that back hander up high until I saw this. I didn’t think to draw the puck back a bit to sort of “load” it . I tried it, works at least 9 out of 10 times. Thanks guys.

Nice one!

There are a few ways to get the backhander up quickly, but I think pulling it back a bit is the easiest, and usually the most effective. It is good to learn because you can use it a lot with dekes. Glad you like the site!
