I'm still trying to improve in this area, but here's something that's helped me a bit. If you're practicing with a ball (golf, quik-hands, tennis or floor hockey ball are all fine) bounce it off a wall and practice fielding the rebound. Standing still, in motion, on your forehand and backhand, and finally settling a bouncing ball.

If the problem is with anticipating the pass you could even go out with a few friends and run pass patterns with a football or basketball. It's a similar concept -- knowing where the passer is, communicating where you're going and where to throw the ball, etc. Most important, you don't need ice to practice.
