DSVII Posted August 5, 2013 Share Posted August 5, 2013 I don't think i see a 'drop in hockey' thread in CDC yet, but i could be wrong. In any case, i'm sure a good chunk of people on the board have experience! Trying to get some stick and puck going this summer and working on my game, wondering if you guys have any advice? I'm mainly a stay at home defenseman, and although my skating has gotten better than when i started , I'm still struggling with my crossovers. I worked a ton this summer to build up my strength and balance though, so I'm pretty confident with puck battles along the boards and stick checking. Mainly, I want to take the next step and try to contribute more offensively, Either by helping on the play when we tbreak out or keeping the puck hemmed in the offensive zone. A weakness in my defensive game is sometimes I tend to have brain farts and just pass the puck up the ice without looking, and that leads to turnovers I guess i'm not too comfortable dekeing past people yet, so any tips on that is appreciated as well! or just General Hockey IQ tips for defensemen too. Thanks in advance Link to comment
