Hmm...is your dominant hand on the bottom of the stick by any chance?

I've had pretty dang smooth hands since about a few months of playing. I don't think I've ever flipped a puck except on purpose.

I also got coached somewhere along the way to not excessively stickhandle, only do it to keep the puck on the blade when changing directions or to fake defenders. I did a bunch of drills where we synced up our hands and legs so we switched front to back or vice versa each time we pushed off with a different leg. If that makes sense?


Anyways, my old roommate and I would go to the garage and stickhandle with golf balls while having conversations and not looking at the puck. I think that helped. Sucked though tracking down golf balls every 30 seconds when they jumped off the blade and rolled in the corner
