Master the art of skating first. This is probably the biggest problem I see with guys who begin playing pickup later on. They just can't skate well.

The best hockey players I've played along side were all fantastic skaters. Perhaps the only good hockey player who wasn't a great skater is Luc Robitaille, but then again they also called him Lucky Luc...

So just hit those public skating sessions and really get down skating. Forwards, backwards, crossing over each side while facing any direction, as well as transitioning between the two.
