He can't bury a rebound if his stick is off the ice. Try move him out of the goalie's line of sight of the puck. If they make a pass from point to point, don't allow him to move over and it will keep him from screening your goalie. Even if the puck is in the corner or isn't an immediate threat, continue to harass the opponent in front of the net; Keep lifting their stick or just maintain contact with them.
