3-5 inches apart, maybe?

It's variable... if you're stickhandling in tight your hands need to be further apart, and if you're stickhandling far out your hands need to be closer together. IMO it's better to stickhandle far out since you have more options. Players coming up from behind you will have a harder time stripping you off of the puck, while the defender in front of you will have to worry about you pulling the puck back if he tries to pokecheck.
