Use these guidelines to help The younger the player, the shorter the pass. Cradle the puck with your stick when you receive it. Dont pass to the player; pass to where he or she is going. And try to put the puck on the blade of the recipients stick. Dont pass over two lines; thats against the rules, and the official will blow the whistle. Then hell call a face off, most likely in your defensive zone. Whenever possible, keep your passes on the ice. But if you must elevate the puck to get it to your teammate, try to make it land flat on the ice so its easier to receive.

20. Left wing
Traditionally a left handed shot, but the NHL is seeing more right handers playing this position now, a practice picked up from the Europeans.
