First, I was wondering the best way to tip a puck in? I think my most effective play style for travel would be a Mike Knuble type who stands in front of the net. I'm one of the bigger kids on my Midget 16U team. Another thing I was wondering about is dangling. Not too great at it yet and I'm not very fast when I'm skating so I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to get around someone if a passing lane isn't open. Any suggestions? Those were for travel. This question is for school. I know this is kinda vague, but what is the easiest way to play defense while getting a little bit involved on offense? I've never tried defense before, but I have a pretty accurate and fairly powerful slapshot. For me, I think my most effective defensive style would be to poke check rather than hitting since I'm still working on that. Any other help on defensive or offensive tips for playing defense?
