Matt Hendricks shootout move

GIF by welshhockeyfan

The book on Matt Hendricksparalyzing shootout move is out. He skates up to the crease with speed, fakes a shot, and then goes to his backhand to deposit the puck into the net. Sometimes he would do the same thing, but stay on his forehand and shoot. Both moves are highly effective. So now everyone knows them.

On Monday, the second day of Caps training camp, Hendricks debuted a new wrinkle. As the wagon commits to a backhand shot, which many goaltenders would expect, Hendy dekes back to his forehand while in the crease.

Michal Neuvirth, who was prepared for the move, couldn’t stop it. He was so faked out he knocked the net off its moorings.

Hendy’s move is at the 17-second mark.

Goaltenders for the other 29 teams: You might wanna study this. Hendy fans:  Maybe buy some more t-shirts now?
