Wrist Shot for Beginners

This video teaches you how to take a wrist shot in under a minute. I show you every single motion that is involved in the wrist shot. When browsing on YouTube I was sick of long winded, boring videos that fail to mention important aspects of the wrist shot. I went out and shot a wrist shot video that tells you everything you need to know in under a minute.

This video explains

  • Position of hands on hockey stick
  • Puck position in stance
  • Puck position on blade of stick
  • Motion of the wrist shot
  • When to roll / flick your wrists
  • Follow through
  • Weight transfer

That’s a lot for one minute eh! Watch the video

Wrist Shot Power and Quick Release

In this next video I show you a few more things you can do to get a bit more power from your wrist shot. I cover a lot of the things I covered in the last video, but this time I am on the ice, and I am shooting off of my other foot. Notice in the first video I am transferring my weight onto my left leg, but in this video I transfer my weight onto my right leg. The video above shows you how to take a powerful wrist shot, and the video below is the perfect technique for a wrist shot with a very quick release (great if you are skating in on the goalie and need to get a quick shot off)

Be sure to subscribe to my videos and this blog as I will cover some of these in more detail in future videos

Hi, Jeremy.
Thanks for a great site!
Can you make a video on how to pass the puck, both by the “saucer” method and more direct, hard passes?



Jeremy January 20, 2013 at 10:47 am

I have an article and video for the Saucer pass and also a video on youtube for passing

I have a right-handed shot and have been finding that my left elbow has been getting sore after takng wrist shots. Not sure is this is an indication of bad technique, weak muscles, etc. Wondering if you can offer an explanation and some advice on how to deal with this? Thanks.


Jeremy January 18, 2012 at 10:58 am

I noticed this as well, it’s nothing to worry about just take a break from shooting for a day or two and stretch your elbow the odd time. For me it would normally happen when I was shooting A LOT, if I shot over 100 pucks a day for a few days my elbow would start to bother me a bit.

I think you should make a video on how to shoot high


davis March 7, 2013 at 9:10 pm

you just finish on one foot and dont turn your toe in your follow through and lift it more up than low

Paul January 13, 2012 at 3:33 am

thanx 4 the tip think it might just work


Mohammed January 2, 2012 at 10:18 am

Jeremy I was wondering if you could make a video on moves we can do to dangle the D-Man


Jeremy January 20, 2013 at 10:41 am

Check out our Deke of the week!

Brent March 15, 2011 at 11:17 pm

I have 2 questions
1. When I’m following through I don’t know where and what part of the stik I use to aim

2. I was wondering if you knew what my chances of making it to the NHL are and so far I’ve played for peewee 9 then bantam 6 then bantam 1 and problu AAA next year


Jeremy March 16, 2011 at 8:40 pm

Not to clue what your chances of making to the N are, but only about 60 new players make it in the NHL each year so you have to be pretty good!

For your wrist shot you point the toe of the blade at where you want the puck to go, check out my article and video on wrist shot accuracy for more info!
