Off-ice skills improvement
 
I already posted in the Fitness thread about possible improvements I can make fitnessly for my game, but I am wondering if their is anything I can do off the ice to improve my game other than the fitness part of it.

Would skating on the roller rink when I don't have practice on ice improve my skating(I only have practice once a week)?

Any tips on how to improve puck handling skills off the ice?

I know it's a vague question, but with so little ice time, it's tough or someone who wants to get better to actually get better.

Thanks for the help.

Stick handling off ice is useful in my mind. You can use a weighted ball, tennis ball, golf ball etc. Part of that depends on what surface you use to practice with. Just work on good, proper technique, wrist roll, cup puck etc.

What would you recommend on a smooth asphalt surface?

Lots of options. On a smooth surface, a roller puck is not a bad idea.

A really good thing to use for stickhandling is this:

I've never used it, although I really want to get one, but it seems really good for practice on stickhandling.

Edit: Just realized it's out of stock on hockey monkey. Here's one on Amazon:

Hey man for smooth asphalt and even rougher areas the GREEN BISCUIT is a pretty great puck for passing/stickhandling.
