Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze four shooting techniques used in ice hockey. Under the experimental conditions, the shooting techniques, performed by high performance male Chinese ice hockey players were filmed and analyzed from the viewpoint of Sports Biomechanics. These included the pulling shot, reflection shot, flick shot and the hitting shot. The results showed that each kind of shooting technique had a distinctive motion structure and technical feature. In competition, correct choice of shooting methods is one of the important factors for improving shooting average.
