Some will probably recommend off ice things that will help. But, in my opinion I just think you need to hit a couple open ice times where you can practice alone at your speed. Trying to learn during a game (even pickup) is a recipe for bad habits and stressful skates.

And for receiving passes, you can practice at open ice by parking yourself 6 feet from the boards. Then just shoot at the boards and catch your rebound, rinse and repeat. Can even tee off one timers if you feel like it.

Honestly, I think you're over thinking it a bit.

PS I whiffed a slapper and fell flat on my face in front of 200 people once. Good times haha.
