To carry out the proper checks along the boards you must learn to force the puck carrier towards the boards. The key is to steer the puck carrier in the direction you want by angling him or her into the boards under a controlled speed : Keep yourself stick-to-stick and body-to-body with the puck carrier continue to skate when close to the puck carrier — don′t glide into the check concentrate on the puck carrier not the puck aim to hit a point on the boards in front of the puck carrier keep your body low and your legs spread for balance.
