to add to Kaitlin’s comment about good position – say when you swing at a puck, is your shoulder drifting forward and out of position as you swing?  So making sure you can keep your shoulder in a good position when you are manipulating your hockey stick is important.  You swing the stick too often with effort in a bad position and you’ll hurt your shoulder for sure.

this assumes you’re not talking about getting hit/checked into a shoulder injury…
