honestly take away the middle of the ice by staying close to him. if you can skate with him and keep him a north-south skater you take away a lot of his skills. like its been said before, always keep your body where he will most likely want to go. as a goalie I see guys get beat a lot because they try to go for the puck. The problem is that if he is as talented as you say he will just dangle around you and succeed most of the time. So even in a no contact league a bump or a nudge wont draw a call but it will slow him down/ change his movements.
