NEVER Miss A Pass – Skills Series

One of the most common issues Coach Jeremy sees on the ice is players struggling with catching passes, especially in your feet or further away. By expanding the area where you can successfully receive a puck, you can get more passes on your stick which will help you get more goals.

The key to perfect hockey passes is to be able to adjust to every angle while keeping your blade flat on the ice. By practicing this skill, you will greatly increase your chances of getting that pass and getting the puck on your stick.


Not everyone has a 2nd person around to help you practice passing, which is where the Hockey Shot Extreme Passer Pro comes in. This is the perfect product for anyone looking to practice hockey passes alone. It is the only passer on the market with dual sided passing lanes, extra durable and on and off-ice compatible. When you use the HS Extreme Passer Pro combined with the HS Extreme Dryland Puck you can get an authentic training experience that will help make sure you never miss a pass again!

Jeremy shows us how shifting your body weight, changing your grip and activating your top hand can help you cup the puck and keep it in an area you can control it. Plus, he shares the proper way on how to hold a stick to instantly bring the puck to where you want it. It’s another great Skills Session with Coach Jeremy, watch the video below to test your hockey skills and learn some new hockey training drills.

Coach Rupke

For many of you who already follow along with his hockey shenanigans, Jeremy Rupke hardly needs an introduction! Jeremy’s love for the game and enthusiasm comes across in all that he does, and he is sure to give you a good laugh even in the pursuit of enhancing your serious hockey skills.

Growing up in the small-town of Hunstville, Ontario, Canada (Population: 20,000) Rupke did not have a lot to do, other than play hockey of course. And really, what else do you need? As a young boy, these small-town roots sparked a passion in Rupke that has yet to be tamed. When Jeremy met obstacles, or identified weaknesses in his game, he did not stop practicing until he found a solution or just got better. This dedication continues to drive everything that he does.

When looking for inspiration Rupke turned to old hockey videos, even before the Internet days, like Don Cherry's “Rock'Em Sock'em Hockey” but don’t tell him we told you. As the Internet took over Jeremy started searching for educational videos online. Unfortunately, (but fortunate for us) Rupke was not satisfied with what he could dig up. As he always does when faced with an obstacle, Jeremy, instead of continuing to look for an improbable solution, created the solution, giving life to HowToHockey.

As you are probably aware, HowToHockey is the bread and butter for online hockey videos (most have been shared right here on HockeyShot). Rupke offers tips and tricks to enhance your game and he is sure to entertain. He is constantly providing his followers with content that can’t be met by any other online hockey sensation in the world! And we sincerely mean that.

Knowing he is providing inspiration to young kids inspires Rupke to continue his work. If you follow him on his many social media accounts, you know that he is already coaching his first-born son, Mason to become the next “Great One” (sorry Wayner). In between making his hockey wife, Sammy very happy of course :)

Rupke meticulously studies the pros and translates the knowledge he gains, into easy to follow advice. He breaks down each hockey skill in a way that most players would not be able to put into words. It’s this attention to detail that helps kids (and adults) make small changes that equal huge gains. In Jeremy’s own words “I guess you could say I am obsessed with player development and coaching”. It’s an obsession that HockeyShot and many of our customers are grateful for! Relating to all the kids out there who don’t get one-on-one time to develop their skills, Rupke, with some help from the Internet, has made this a possibility to players around the globe!

Kudos to our Bench Boss Jeremy Rupke.
