You want to play the pass but stay in a position that does not allow the puck carrier to have access to the middle or be able to cut through the slot. Being non-contact that would mean staying slightly ahead as far as depth into your zone. Should you take this all the way to the crease you would want to end up just to your goalies weak side. Staying at the middle of the ice just to the goalies far side of the carrier. Be aware of your skate blades. On a shot or pass deeper than the top of the circle, you would turn to face the shooter. Any deflection off the skates would generally be safe. In the case that this would put your stick hand on the wrong side to defend the pass turn to face the trailer if reaching the pass is a stretch. If you do these things, no goalie can fault you.
