Just wondering, after about 13 years away from hockey, I am back playing. I started as a winger and was doing fairly well, but I recently got shifted to defense. I don't have any issues with playing D, I actually like it and that's what I played when I was a kid. The only issue is that I realize my backwards skating isn't quite where I would like it to be. I can do really well at the other aspects of defending. I'm fast skating forwards, am pretty good positionally and specialize in clearing the front of the net. However, I'm not good one 1-on-1s because of my limited agility/speed whilst skating backwards. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can work on this to become a more complete player? On-ice ideas or Off-ice training ideas are both welcome. Thanks in advance.
