    Goalie is one of the most difficult positions to play in NHL 24, but it can be a very rewarding experience. Whether you play as a goalkeeper in a franchise, professional, World of Chel or Clubs, you will need some skill as your team’s last line of defense. Other positions are fun, but I like playing goalie because the positional controls bring new gameplay to NHL 24. Here are the best tips and tricks for playing goalie in NHL 24.

    How to block goals in NHL 24

    As a goalkeeper, your only job is to prevent the offense from scoring, but that’s easier said than done. When playing as a goalkeeper, you will first need to know what areas need to be covered. The nets covered by the goalkeepers usually have five holes that the offensive players will shoot at. The best way to take cover is to know where the offense is shooting from and lean in to cut off the most space to shoot on net.

    Use the Hug Post Actions to cover angles to block shots coming towards you. For high shots, your glove will automatically move to where the puck is going, so you just have to position yourself correctly.

    For low shots, you have a few different moves to potentially block the goal. If you think the shot is going between your legs, use the Butterfly action to prevent the shot from passing through the open area. You can also use the V propagation or babsolute slide actions to cover more space, but will leave the top half of the goal open.

    You’ll also want to keep an eye on your stamina. The new escape system will deplete your stamina the more shots on net your opponents take, so be sure to position yourself well to discourage your opponents from taking more shots on goal.

    In general, to improve as a goalie, you need to get comfortable with the controls, practice covering angles during games, and improve your hockey IQ to understand plays and where shots are most likely to come from.
