1) Even though it was said before, KEEP MOVING YOUR FEET, always. I see so many players who are not good/beginners, etc., reaching to try and either get a loose puck near them or stop an opposing player and instead of moving their feet and crossing over/stepping towards the puck - they stop moving their feet and reach as far as they can, like they're holding a pool cleaner and are afraid to fall in and get wet.
2) Always try to keep your eyes no higher / no lower than the yellow line painted around the boards. You should not be looking at your feet (too low) unless its just for a second to get the puck out of your feet, and should not be looking to high up above the line.
3) When stickhandling as you skate forward, remember the 10:00 to 2:00 pm range - the puck should always be in that area. Too far to one side and you will probably lose the puck, so keep it within the controllable range.
