A favourite technique of defensive players, particularly those from Eastern Europe, huffing is simply the tactic of reversing the direction of play of a player. In more detail, the player shunts the victim into an adjacent but blocked station, causing the recipient of the shunt to "bounce" back to his previous location, but to be facing in the opposite direction. Whilst sounding very minor, this can completely ruin a well built-up combination of moves, and is as such a very effective form of defense against many attacking tactics.
