All right, something that you might want to
learn, is how to poke check. It’s something that, if the other team has the puck, you
can get the puck away, by putting your stick out, and usually defensemen are really good
at this. It helps if you’re good at this. A forward might be coming at you with the
puck, trying to get around you, and what you’re going to do as a defensemen, is you can just
lunge with your stick, and try to get the puck away, but pretty much, you’re going to
come in and on the person’s stick with the puck, and just clear it off of their stick.
It prevents them from keeping control of the puck, and it gives your players, your team,
another opportunity to get the free puck. It’s a loose puck, so you can go after it
at that point, but the poke check, you definitely want to use that to get it away from the other
team. If you’re a forward, you can also do that to another forward, by poke checking
too, just along the boards or something, or as a stick check, by covering their stick
up, and preventing them from getting the puck, if it’s in the corner, or wherever the puck
is. Just stop them from getting to the puck, by blocking their stick. Then they have no
control to get the puck.

    forget poke checks…just skip the polite stuff, cross check the puck carrier in the face and teach him (or her) a lesson for carrying the puck.

    NHL defensive never stick check, right? They ALWAYS lay people out…
    For anyone that's actually trying to learn something, I always like to keep my elbow tucked in at my side while I'm skating backwards, defending. It gives the puck carrier a sense that he has more room. So when I reach out to poke the puck away, he's in a little closer. If you skate with the arm fully extended the entire time, then your opponent knows exactly how much room he has to work with.

    well this one is kind'a wrong. You just Skate backwards until he's in the reach for body check or hit! The goalie or other players will get the puck when you disable the forward. The puck by itself can't score.
