It′s important to keep your head up when passing the puck. Most bad passes are caused by not looking up to spot your intended target. You should also be aware of where you are on the ice. Blind cross-ice passes are the leading cause of grey hairs among hockey coaches. Playing it safe and being smart with the puck will greatly improve your odds of winning the game.
Catch Glove. In today's game many believe that bigger is always better when it comes to a goaltender's glove. This is not true. Having a glove that is too big will limit a goaltender's ability to catch and control the puck. Here are two tips to follow when fitting a glove. First from the end of the finger channels to the tips of a goaltender's fingers there should be no more than 1/4 of an inch of space. Second the heel of the goaltender's hand and the heel/cuff of the glove should line up.
Some people say that when you′re coming in on a breakaway or penalty shot you should have a strategy of what you want to do before you get to the goalie. I think you have to take what the goalie gives you. If he comes out to cut down the angle try to deke around him. If he′s back in the net pick your spot and shoot it.
