One of the best ways to steal the puck from the opposition in minor hockey is to stick lift. This means players will have to be strong on their stick. They must have their hands shoulder width apart, close to their opponent and can't be stretched out reaching. Hockey stance plays an important role here, players may have to incorporate their legs to win that puck battle.
