Top 5 Tips That Will Harness Your Skills And Make You A Better Hockey Player

07 Nov 2020 |


The game of hockey is one sport that attracts millions of viewers and bettors from all over the world. However, many bettors prefer to increase their odds of winning by signing up on betting sites that provide picks according to Finnish bookmarkers’ predictions.

However, Going from behind the casino to kicking ass on the front lines on the pitch, you’ll need to be well equipped with proper offense lessons.

1. Take The Puck Across The Net.

In that split moment when you realize that you have beaten a defender to it and fast approaching the net, do not hesitate for a second, take the puck across the crease.

If your sole intention is to take the puck across the crease and all the way in, ensure that you follow it through. Even if the goalie comes hard at you, going all the way across opens him up entirely from his five-hole to his armpits and everything else.

When taking it across the crease, be very flexible as you have many options for a garbage goal aside from the one you’re trying to pull off

2. Change Speeds On The Rush.

You can decide to start slow, pick up the pace as you go, or start aggressively and then go slow.  When you go slowly too fast, you approach the D-man casually till he decides to engage, then boom, you hit the gas, take it around the D-man and shoot on net. Hockey stars like Datsyuk, Kane, Crosby, and Petterson do the latter most of the time.  When you go fast to slow, this is  what happens :

  • You stop the D-men in their tracks temporarily.

  • The D-men back in deep, giving you a fantastic screen for a shot.

  • Create  a gap between  yourself and the D-men  so you can have  more time to weigh your options

  • Your team-mates have more time to catch up, so you have more options.

  • 3. Change The Angle On Shots.

It doesn’t take much to turn what would be a save into a goal. The trick is to have the puck out a bit wider than where you would usually shoot from, then give it a little toe pull into your feet before pulling the trigger.

Goalies over-estimating the pull-shot can leave their other side wide open. If the goalie were square to where the puck was initially, you’d have it coming at him from a slightly different angle

4. Overestimate The Angles

Overestimating the angle is playing safe; either way, you’ll find yourself in a win-win situation.  Not only do you give yourself a massive room for error when you overestimate the angles, but you also get to have more options; you either get trapped under the goalie, get bounced back into the play-zone, or get a weak rebound.

These are all far better options than having a soft tip to the non-play-zone and having the puck taken out on a rush play by those defenders close to the net

5. Take Your  Time

If you find yourself in the offensive zone, behind the goal or to the side, or if a D-man is pressuring you and all hopes seem to be lost, a blind pass from behind the net appears to be your most realistic shot, but no, it isn’t. Never take a blind pass from behind the goal line; take your time so you can put yourself in a position to pick up any rebounds or weak shots.


What  defines a good hockey player is the choices he makes, so weigh your options properly and be the player who creates winning opportunities for your team.
