Thanks to the new Total Control layout in NHL 24, previously complex moves like the Lacrosse Deke or Between The Legs Pass have been significantly simplified for players. They'll still be difficult to nail at the right moment, but the controls themselves have gotten much easier than in previous years.

To do a Between The Legs Deke in NHL 24, all you have to do is press B or Circle. However, your choice after pressing that button will determine the exact type of maneuver you're hitting. If all you want to do is slip the puck between your legs to keep it away from the defender with a Between The Legs Deke, hold B or Circle and then press LB or L1 to cancel any further action and bring the puck back to regular position.

If you want to execute a Between The Legs Pass, hold B or Circle then Press RT or R2 with the Left Stick pointed towards the teammate you want the puck to head towards. You can also change that to a Between The Legs Saucer Pass by pressing RB or R1 instead of RT or R2. You can practice these moves in action in HUT Rush for Hockey Ultimate Team where you'll even get real-time feedback confirming you nailed a Between The Legs Pass or Shot.
