For Icehockey just dicking around playing street and roller hockey will help you vastly. Or during the winter just playing casual shinny at the rink.

I pretty much taught myself to stickhandle and I consider myself very good at it. Started off with a racquet ball cause its a huge pain in the ass, golfball works from what I'm told. Basically find a way to practice stickhandling with anything and you will notice an improvement

Growing up i'd play roller hockey on my driveway constantly with a crappy puck. Eventually, our driveway got all roughed up and the puck constantly bounced around and so having to deal with that, I got pretty good.

Playing at the rink during spare time is the best way to go. Just dink around with the puck.

Practice with a golf ball in your basement. Once you get pretty smooth, start deking around things.

Especially as the puck became ball shaped!

It depends. I grew up on the outdoor rink. My hands are great in tight and scoring because that is all I ever practiced.

The understanding of how the puck leaves your stick and where it will go based on what you do is how to get better.

I don't have great deking hands in mid ice because I never practiced with pylons or whatever. Although deking a goalie is a better skill to have.
