I would say practice game situations more. Practice stickhandling while skating instead of just standing in place and stickhandling a ball. Find some cones and stick handle through them, go at top speed, dont worry about losing the puck. Eventually you'll get better at it.

Work on the mental part of your game too. After a game, remember the mistakes you made and think about what you could have done better, and next time make an effort to make the smarter play.

Practice, practice, practice. I've been playing hockey for 26 years, and I'm only 29 years old. I had the benefit of starting at a young age, but I can tell you I didn't start to excel above other players until I had been playing for about 8 years. It takes time, be patient and most importantly have fun. Don't get frustrated.
