Forehand deflection analysis: a brief but specific tutorial

Here we can see some details on how to do a hockey deflection on the right side. This deflection is used as a scoring skill but also as a passing skills. 

These are the 3 main steps on the video:
1. Receive the ball to the right side of the body.
2. Hold the stick stationary at the angle of deflection.
3. Allow the ball to hit the stick (not necessary to swing at it)
