Like every sports simulator, NHL 23 allows players to create and customize their own character. It allows you to style your own clothes, facial features, and even shot style. Different styles change the shot animation and allow the player to more accurately hit a shot. Yearly releases of sports games bring different shot styles and can even tweak styles from previous years. These can mimic real life professional players upswings and follow throughs. All of these features bring the community to the same question year after year: what’s the best shot style in NHL 23?

Much like a crosshair in an FPS game, sometimes the best way to find the right shot style for you is by going against the grain.

Sometimes you might not have the time or energy to try different variations. If this is the case, then shot style 17 is going to be your best friend.
