I think the best thing you can do, aside from constantly getting on the ice as much as possible, is to watch hockey. I think that's where a lot of these "surprising" skills come from. Monkey see, monkey do.

For those wondering about positioning, this is also a good tactic. Next time you go to a game where any sort of higher level guys are playing (whether in your local league, or NHL or whatever) pick one guy and watch where he is in the defensive zone, and how he transitions to offense.
