how to chip over checks while stickhandling

not sure what the correct term is, but I've played against some good players who are able skate, stickhandle, and have the puck jump over defender's sticks like a little chip/saucer pass but with regular stickhandle/pushing motion. Anybody know the technique behind it and know how to actually practice that?

I'm thinking they do a saucer pass but just with very little motion or follow through. You can just quickly bump it with the heel of your blade in a very short/small saucer pass motion and it'll jump up just a little for you.

Here's a video I found with short saucer passes that would be good for hopping over defensemen's sticks. Notice he doesn't do the full motion that would give you a long saucer pass but a short, quick bump that makes it hop only a couple feet.

thanks for that. i guess takes a lot of practice to get it right, any attempt at a semi saucer would either make the puck go too far or not jump high enough. It's almost like puck is bouncing like a bball.

Here's a Crosby one, makes it look easy.

The trick is to have the puck moving backward just before chipping it forward. Hitting the puck while it's moving toward the blade will make it lift more easily. Observe in the videos that the puck is not stationary at the moment it's being chipped. It's pulled backward just before the moment it's chipped forward.

A couple years ago I started being able to do the little chip rather effectively. Doing stuff like the drill Crosby does in the video above is a great way to practice. As evidence in the video, it's a lot easier to do it on your backhand than your forehand. Doing it with speed is a different beast entirely and it took me a while to get the confidence to try it out on 1-on-1 battle.

Developing soft hands and working out the finer muscles by stick handling a lot helps tremendously. It's just a matter of trying to do a light saucer pass basically and developing these muscles in your wrist and forearm will give you more control over the action.

Its a ton of practice. Simple as that. Its like a soccer player being able to or not juggle the ball with his feet and rest of his body.

Its hard but not that difficult to do. Of course when you put in a defender it does get harder lol
