This is a situation where you need to talk to your defensive partner and possibly your center when you're on the bench, and get everyone on the same page. Getting the puck away from this guy is one thing, but you probably need to move it quickly considering he's obviously a good forechecker.

Tell your partner what's going on, ask him what he's seeing from his angle, and agree on a game plan so you're not out there trying to read a play and handle the puck against a good forechecker at the same time. Chances are, a simple ring-around the boards to a waiting teammate will work fine.
