Hands out in front - It was mentioned before, but I can not stress it enough. Beyond affecting the ability to stick handle and receive/give passes, it also hinders many important skating manoeuvres. Tight turns, crossovers, and most lateral skating is lead by the shoulders. If your top hand is on your hip it prevents proper core rotation even if you don't have the puck.

You probably have more time than you think you do - As previously mentioned. It is especially important for young and new players to realize. It is important to take the time not to just make the safe play, but the best play.

Stick blade to stick blade defence - This is especially important defending one versus one. It is important to remember when attacking the point as well.
