Keeping you hands in front of your body is more important than you think. You always want to have your hands in front of your body because it will cut off more of the angle. It will also make things a lot easier for catching and blocking because you can follow the puck into your hands instead of always trying to guess where the puck is going to end up. When the play is in close it is especially important to keep your hands in front because having you hands out just a little bit will cut off a lot more angle than having your hand by your side. Keeping your hands in front will also make your movements more in control. When keeping your hand in front of your body, you don't need them to be way out in front of you but out just enough that you can see the puck into your hands.
