Everybody loves to skate with the puck and stickhandle through the opposition defenses on the way to the net. Still it′s much more effective if you let the puck do the work for you. Passing is without a doubt the best way to move the puck.
You can practice your backhander just like you would the wrist shot. Line up near the boards with some pucks. Pick out spots on the boards (one low and one high) and practice hitting the target. Remember to concentrate on your weight transfer and follow through. It′s also good to set up cones near the bottom of the face-off circle and cut around the cones working on both your forehand and backhand as you get your shot on net.
USA Hockey strongly discourages checking from behind but if it should happen while you′re facing the boards get your stick and gloves up to spread out the area of impact. Use your arms as shock absorbers.
