A few things to study...

1) Gap control: Know everything about it
2) Hit/block shots: Study what pros do.
3) Be overly smart with the puck: Don't make the big play - throw the puck out when in trouble.

Honestly... the best shutdown defenders are the smartest hockey players. Study the game. Study angles. Study hits. Study blocked shots. Communicate every second of the game. Remember, be everyone's eyes out there.
