You have a few options:
-shift either left or right, and turn your shoulders to get your stick on it
-while it is the d-man's fault, try not to skate straight up ice while he's looking to make a pass
-my personal favourite: turn around and start skating towards your own goal. This may not be a good choice if you're a beginner, but I'm one of the better in my league (houseleague, because I suck or something), and I find going in the opposite direction really shakes the defenders, and makes the pass easier to receive.
-if you really have to, let come beside you or between your legs, and angle your stick so you stop it (you're going to have a real hard time if the blade is parallel to your skates)
