NHL 24 HUT Sweep Check Guide

Sweep Check is a defensive move executed by moving the right stick as you hold the RB or R1 in NHL 24. Hold the X or square to hip check.

Checking in Ice hockey is used to either steal the puck or knock it off from their control to prevent the opponent from scoring or completing their pass. 

It is a type of checking that involves using the stick in a sweeping motion to disrupt the opponent. It is equally important to defend your lead as it is to create it which means learning to do defensive moves like checks along with offensive moves like dekes.

How To Drop Pass NHL 24?

Drop Pass in NHL 24 can be done by pressing the RB(Xbox) or R1(PlayStation) on your controller as you remain aware not to move the left stick.

It is performed when a player passes the puck directly by stopping the puck and skating past it leaving the puck to be picked up by the teammate trailing behind.

Drop Pass in NHL 24 can be performed by using the RB or R1 for all three controller settings i.e. Skill Stick, Hybrid Controls, and Total Controls.

Hold the Y(Xbox) or Triangle(PlayStation) and then release to Michigan NHL 24. This is the control schema for the Total Control Layout. 

"The Michigan" also known as the Lacrosse style goal is one of the difficult moves to pull off in hockey but it's been made easier to execute under the Total Control Layout. The shot requires you to put the puck on the blade of the stick and fling it towards the net just like in lacrosse.

  • Xbox: Forehand + LB (Hold) + RS (Hold) + Right Stick (rotate counterclockwise)
