  • Xbox: Forehand + LB (Hold) + RS (Hold) + Right Stick (rotate counterclockwise)
  • PlayStation: Forehand + L1 (Hold) + R3 (Hold) + Right Stick (rotate counterclockwise)

For those who don’t know how to put the stick on the forehand, here’s what you’ll need to do.

To put the puck on the forehand, move the right stick to either the left or right, depending on whether the shooter is left-handed or right-handed, respectively.

Individuals who are using the Total Control input system need to hold Y (for Xbox) or Triangle (for PlayStation) and then release by the goaltender.

Those who want to do the move with a higher rate of success and with ease are with the Total Control schema. Given the number of inputs needed to perform it with the Skill Stick, that’s not surprising.
