Another thing is practicing with a weighted puck. I practice it at every 30 degree angle until the puck is in back of me and then slip it through my legs. Practicing your toe drag with a weighted puck is great too.
Practicing stickhandling between chair legs is also very good. It gets you out of the habit of keeping the stick on top of the puck when stick handling.
I think that everyone will tell you the same thing and thats practice, practice and more practicing.
why is stickhandling between chair legs beneficial again? Why isnt it beneficial to have the stick over the puck when stickhandling?
