Open ice hits are tough and opportunistic at best. Aim in front of him and look to go through him. It's very risky, so make sure you can make the hit, because your more than likely taking yourself out of the play slightly to make the hit. Along the boards, cfelix covered it very well.

Remember, hits are there to take the opponent off the puck, not to hurt them.
