Best Answer

The weight of a hockey puck changes the shot a lot. A lighter puck can not be hit as hard and their more of a posibility of the trajectory being off. A heavier puck will be too heavy to be shot at high speeds, therefore the shot wouldn't be quite as hard.

There is no such thing as a "shovel" shot in hockey.

There is no rolling of the wrist to propel the puck. It is very basic and it is indeed a shot.***
