Some advice I have:
Don't be afraid to slow the game down, take that extra second or two and THINK, always take a 360 look when going to get the puck.
When you're on the point in the O zone, and an opponent is skating hard at you, don't be afraid to just stand there and make him think that you're about to shoot, 9/10 times the forward will curl, and then you will have miles of free space, that 1/10 times they don't curl, just dump it in.
Use your partner, passing laterally on the breakout can open up the play so much it's ridiculous.
In front of the net, the rules are a lot less strict, don't be afraid to let the other team know that they better the **** out of the crease!
If the forwards aren't passing to you when you're wide open on the point, go over to them during a stoppage and tell them.
