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.
A lot of times a forward will deke himself out. He′ll have the goalie beat but he already has his mind made up that he′s going to do something else. He′ll actually fumble it before he can shoot it. Remember make the goalie make the save. Don′t make it easy for him.
There are three major types of body checks: shoulder check hip check and checking along the boards. The shoulder check is the most common. It is normally used by a defenseman when taking out an onrushing forward : Concentrate on the chest of the attacker since it is the most difficult part of the body to shift quickly keep your feet shoulder-width apart bend your knees and keep the weight on the inside edges of the blades use your legs to drive your shoulder into the opponent′s chest. Keep your head up and your stick down at all times.
