Telling your defensemen when people are on them, or if they have time is always helpful. I don't think there should be any worries about wrong information either. If a defenseman is racing for a puck dumped behind the goal, all you have to say is "Man on you!" or "You have time". The defenseman should have his/her headup to read the play. Its also helpful to give advice to your defensemen before the faceoff. Just give them words of encouragement, and maybe tell them something you notice about their game that can be corrected quickly.

Communication doesn't have to be verbal either. When your team is on a powerplay, and there is only a few seconds left, its helpful to bang your stick on the ice, one beat for each second, to tell your defensemen there is a person coming out of the box, and to drop back a little. I'm no expert, but hopefully this helps you out a bit. Good luck with your team.
