At its highest levels, hockey is a tough, competitive sport. But it's also a fun game played by men and women of almost any age. Developing hockey tricks is another way to have fun with the game or just to show off. Occasionally, however, a trick will work in a real game.
Lower your stick so the wide part of the blade is almost parallel with the ice.
Press the edge of the puck with your stick, causing the other end of the puck to raise off the ice.
Drag the puck back toward your side, then move your stick in an arc, bringing the puck back, then moving it forward in a half-circular trajectory. As you begin the portion of the arc where you're pushing the puck forward, rotate your wrists quickly to bring the bottom edge of the stick under the puck as you continue moving forward. As soon as the edge of your stick is beneath the puck, lift the stick in the air, scooping the puck up off the ice. Keep the puck on its edge until you're ready to scoop it. Make your scooping motion quickly, getting the side of the blade parallel with the ice as soon as possible.
Crosby Pyramid Trick
Set up five to seven rows of pucks in a pyramid shape on top of the boards, in front of a player's bench.
Line up some pucks on the ice, parallel to the boards. The farther you are from the pucks on the boards, the better the trick.
Shoot at the pyramid, trying to dislodge as many pucks as possible.
Between the Legs Move
Position yourself so the puck is on your forehand and off to your side. If you're a right-handed player, the puck should be outside of your right foot.
Bring the foot closest to the puck forward a bit, then flick your wrists to pass the puck between your feet.
Move your stick quickly in front of your lead foot then down onto the ice to catch your own pass on the backhand side of your stick.
- The trick sometimes referred to as вЂњthe MichiganвЂќ was made famous by University of Michigan player Mike Legg, although he didn't invent it. Legg used the trick to score the tying goal in a 1996 NCAA regional final game against Minnesota. Michigan went on to win the game and the national championship.
