You don't have the puck for long in a standard game, you need to be able to do EXACTLY what you want with it!

Stickhandling is another important fundamental skill in the game of ice hockey. Players must develop good puck handling skills in order give and receive passes, shoot, and maintain possession of the puck. Practicing skickhandling is something that can be done both on an off the ice.

Hockey players can practice stick handling both on and off the ice. The important thing, especially for young players, is simply to have a stick in their hands and play with a puck. Street hockey games are a great way to develop stick handling skills but a player should also practice stick handling alone to focus on his technique and to learn new skills.

Stick handling can be practiced off the ice in your basement, garage or in your driveway. You can use a ball (tennis, golf or roller hockey) but a puck provides a better simulation. The more the puck and stick slide on the surface, the better it is for stick handling.
