Often goalies get a stick that may be too long for them, as they are tempted to determine the paddle size they need while in an upright stance, rather than in the butterfly position when you will be using the stick to block shots. When in the upright stance, you predominantly rely on your body to block any incoming pucks.How to choose the right hockey stick blade?
You want the stick blade to contact the ice surface to cover the 5 hole between your thighs, while at the same time, having your body in a position to keep the 6 hole between your arms and torso as small as possible.How do you use a stick save in hockey?
Your stick blade does not have to be touching the ice in this position – moving quickly and freely from side-to-side and forwards and backwards and using your body, blocker, catcher and pads to deflect pucks is the typical technique. You will use a stick save when you are in the butterfly position.
