Two that helped me very much as a player, but may be more specific to my playing style:

1) Control your emotions, especially during more competitive times of a game. Take the time during a whistle or a line change, even skating to the dot for a face-off to ground yourself and visualize.

2) Skating down the wing driving do the net, use the net to peel a defensemen from your side while protecting the puck, coming around the other side of the net, don't try to force a play to the middle, if you have a lane take it, otherwise keep possession of the puck.

And a third, always know what you're going to do with the puck before you get it, if you're picking up a loose puck or calling for a pass, have your head on a swivel, know the general idea of what people are doing and where they are going on both teams.
