In-Tight Scoring: Going Upstairs in the Slot

Skill Drills

Welcome to the In-Tight Scoring Series with legendary Skills Coach Pete Lenes, a.k.a. Swaggy P! This series is specifically designed to teach players how to take advantage of opportunities down low and in-tight so that they can score more goals!

At HockeyShot, we’re passionate about elevating hockey players’ skills to new heights. That’s why we set out to create the ultimate guide for players to score more goals with elite level instruction and drills from Coach Pete!

As a former D1 player turned 10-year pro, Pete Lenes is passionate about pushing player development to the next level. As the co-owner of Elev802 in Vermont, Pete works with elite players on refining their skills, creating more offensive opportunities, and becoming elite goal scorers.  Swaggy P not only constantly pushes the limits of his local players, but also himself, quickly becoming one of the hockey community’s most followed coaches for his blend of high quality instruction, mind-blowing stick skills, and puck control. 

And now, he’s here to teach you!

Coach Pete shows us a few of his favourite drills to develop confidence in-tight and unlock the skill to consistently put the puck in the net!

In this video, Swaggy P shows us a drill that focuses on quick tight stickhandles and firing shots upstairs. Check it out!

For this lesson, Swaggy P focuses on the importance of quick side-to-side movements with the puck and getting away from the goalie.

This drill is perfect for working on stickhandling and it also recreates a real-game scenario of a defenseman in front of the net. Make sure your hands are away from your body for maximum stickhandling mobility and they are ready to fire those shots.

Get those quick hands and start sniping shots upstairs in the slot!
