A wrist shot is a type of ice hockey shot that involves using arm muscles (especially those in the wrist and forearm) to propel a puck forward from the open-faced, part of the blade of a hockey stick. Generally, when the puck is shot in a similar manner using the side of the blade, it is referred to as a backhand shot. The advantage of a wrist shot over a slap shot is that there is an element of surprise in that the minimal amount of setup for the shot doesn't let an opponent on to the fact that a player is about to shoot, and a wrist shot is far more accurate than a slap shot.
