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.
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.
