The Ultimate Challenge for all you Goalies


Stand in the goal crease and shoot the puck as far down the ice in the air with your gloves on.

Over the far blue line is my best. I couldn't reach the far goal line.

I may have hit the circle at the other end 1-2
times my whole career.

Who is still brave enough to post there distance? emoticon

This is a cool challenge. Unfortunatly I am a lefty goalie and I don't shoot right.. I usually backhand it. My Right shot would barely make the blue line on my end.

I had to learn the lefthand shot as many of us had to. I could hit center ice on this.

Re: The Ultimate Challenge for all you Goalies


I had a unique way of doing [sign in to see URL] used a right handed curved stick "Louisville" at the end of my "career", but I am a left handed goalie, so I could just use my blocker hand and like "flick" it using my left knee area of my pad, and could send that thing over half-way down.

I think the best I could ever do was just passed my own blueline. I've never used a curved stick though.

I would fail miserably on this one - I remember back in the day working with Paul Skidmore as a teenager - at age 16 Paul from his net could loft the puck over the far blueline consistently.

Re: The Ultimate Challenge for all you Goalies


It's not an easy thing to do.
My coach Greg Lacombe MJHL Kildonan North Stars forced me to learn to shoot left in practice but let me switch hands in the games.I was 16 at the time. It really depends on where you put the curve and upshoot on the blade. The new sticks are very hard or impossible to change the curve, so I usually just use it the way I it comes. If you are like me I usually use a stick to death and lucky to get it to the blueline or center.
A new stick always shoots the best for me.

Somewhere in between my blueline and centre ice is my best.I found out that when I modified the way i taped the knob on my stick to make it fit in the palm of my hand helped big time.

I'm lucky in that I catch with my right hand and shoot right so I dont have to do the Turco grip thing. With a curved stick, I can loft it down b/w the red line and the other side's blue line.

Re: The Ultimate Challenge for all you Goalies


Very difficult to do this consistently, tried it this morning, most were lame but one was over the far blue, that was one out of about 8.
I'll try again next week.
