Start at the heel of the blade. This will let you open the blade up to give it a great lift.
Start in the middle or at the toe of the blade. This is where the curve is and will give you a great lift.
Start at the toe of the blade. The more curve the better the saucer pass.
Start at the heel of the blade. Rotate the puck through the whole blade to spin the puck so it will stay flat.
Start at the heel and rotate the puck through the whole blade.
Open the blade as much as possible.
Use weight transfer if possible.
Keep the blade as flat to the ice as possible (the lie of the stick).
Keeping my head up on the ice is the same as reading a question and the answers on a test in school. Without keeping my head up I really don't know what the question is or what my options are. Without keeping my head up I am basically just guessing my way through hockey.
It is important to know if my teammates are great hockey players or bad hockey players so I know whether to pass or not.
Keeping my head up when passing allows me to see what type of pass to use. For example, if there is a stick in the way of my teammate I want to pass it to, I can just sauce that puck over it.
Keeping my head up is only important if there are opponents around me. If the passing lanes are open, it is better to look at the puck when I pass so I will know where it is on the blade to make sure I won't screw up.
Start off by facing your teammate with the puck and then rotate your pass execution towards your target.
Start off by facing your pass target to make sure your pass will go in the right direction.
Cradle the puck by moving both hands forward through the execution.
Do not keep your upper (dominant) hand close to your body, move it forward to cradle the puck.
