Usually, I won't get that pass in stride because I'm far away from the puck, or it will come to hard and I won't be able to take it cleanly. My next game is tonight, and I think I'm going to help by trying to skate the puck out of my zone instead of looking for long passes.

Watch one player as much as you can.

Look at him, what does he do when the puck is passed across the ice by the other team?
What does he do when his team breaks out?
What does he do when his team is cycling in the offensive zone?

Watch what he's doing.
Think, "Why is he doing that?"

Do your best to understand why he did what he did to help his team out and not to put up indiviual numbers.
Just keep this up, and you'll have a better chance at being a more complete player.
