The backhand shot is similar to the forehand wrist shot. With the backhand, players want to be in a strong hockey position allowing for them to transfer their weight from back foot to front foot towards the target. Players will want to have their head up and hands away from the body. Players will want to keep the puck prepped on the heel of their blade and have it roll off the toe.
