When the puck is shot and someone with their stick or skate redirects the puck or 'tips' it.

Block the puck
When you shoot the hockey puck and it either hits the goalie or gos in the net
There is no such thing as a "shovel" shot in hockey. This is a Mike Emrick-created expression that extends from when a player "shovels" or dumps the puck into the offensive zone, so Emrick called it a "shovel shot!" ***The shovel shot is simply using one's stick to push the puck in a desired direction. There is no rolling of the wrist to propel the puck. It is very basic and it is indeed a shot.***
That's something for the myth busters
As far as I am aware, there is something called Kinetic energy, the movement of the puck causes kinetic energy.
Their is a slapshot, which is the most powerful shot in hockey. Its speed in the NHL can range from 80-105mph. Wrist shot is when the puck is pulled through he body launching the puck of the stick like a sling shot. A snapshot is also used as a shot, and the wrist literally snap when striking the puck. This is used for quick releases/ Also, passes are used which can look like a "Strike"
Yes it does because it helps feel the puck and aim it..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A wrist shot is a shot in ice hockey which involves primarily the wrist muscles to propel the puck using the concave side of the blade.
Flexibility is important to a hockey stick as it provides an extra flick to the puck when taking a slap shot or snap shot which further provides more speed.
To shoot a hockey puck correctly you need to use your wrist allot and have strong arm and leg muscles. There are various ways to shoot a hockey puck one way is to bend your knees slightly, grasp the stick lightly, pul back your hockey stick WITH THE PUCK use your wrist and release using your wrist and kick you leg behind the other leg quickly. if you are unsure how to do this type of shot (wrist shot) check out this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVa16eM3EUE thanks go hockey!
a top shelf goal is when the puck is shot in the upper part of the net
Any shot (of the puck) that has a reasonable chance of crossing the goal line.
A wrist shot is using you wrist to shoot a puck without slapping it off ice, you keep it on the ice when you shoot.
There are no penalty strokes in hockey, theres penalty shots where basically a skater taking the shot has one shot to get the puck past the goalie. theres penalty strokes in golf
The record for the fastest slap shot is 105.9 MPH by Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins. There is no real max speed for a hockey puck because someone always could break the record again.
it is when you scoop the puck up onto the blade of your stick, more of a trick-shot type thing.
A puck shot from your side of the centre ice line which crosses the end line (horizontal extension of the goal line) without touching a player or his stick. Note, icing can be waved off if the puck is touched first by a players from the team which shot the puck in.
Sidney Crosby is the best puck handler and deker in all of Hockey he has a pretty good shot to.
The rule is that if a player closes his hand on the puck in the goal crease, then a penalty shot is awarded, if the goalie has been pulled when a penalty shot is awarded, then the referee awards a goal to the team instead.
you put your weight on the lower hand and slide the stick forwards fast on the ice.
If this happens................ The player can touch the puck with his hand in the defesive zone, but if he does close his hand on the puck in the crease than a goal can be awarded if there is no goalie If there is a goalie then the other team can have a penalty shot.
In ice hockey, icing is called when the puck is shot into the team's offensive zone and crosses both the center line and goal line (but the puck does not enter the net) without toughing a player or their stick. This results in a face-off in the team's defensive zone.
I like to think about it like this: if the goalie hadn't been there, would it have gone in? If so, then it counts as a shot. but it also counts if the goalie freezes the puck at any time.
