1. Please hit me with all the tips and advice you've got. Youtube links are great but I couldn't find too much.
I've looked quite a bit, but maybe one of you guys has a video on how to keep puck in the offensive zone using your shin pads and skates?
I don't have a video on that, but usually, the opposing team will try to get the puck out off the boards/glass. My best tip is to hold your stick with your left hand only, put your body against the boards with your legs closed. This way, you will intercept every puck sent against the boards. Stick your right hand out to bring the pucks flying over your head down, and be prepared to play it immediately.
Also, get used to catching and giving passes on your backhand.
Other than that, it's the same as playing the right point.
