Ben Eaves demonstrates a Catch and Release Shot. This shooting technique can catch a defenceman and goalie off guard because it can result in a quicker shot release.

Keys to a Good Catch and Release Shot

  • present your stick so your teammate knows where to pass the puck.
  • the fist touch should set the puck up slightly in front of you so you can lean into the shot.
  • strong top hand pulls hard towards body.
  • bottom hand follows through much like the snap shot.
