To give a hit keep your elbows done the refs will call it almost everytime, and keep your legs going and drive through the guy with your shoulder. also dont go out of your way just to hit someone it looks bad and 9 times out of 10 you take yourself right out of the play. theres no real way to take a hit becuase you never know if someone is going to hit you. when i played i was told dont worry about the hit worry about the play going on if dont you spend time wondering if your going to get hit instead of making a play, also never turn your back to a hit it makes everything worse. to be aware just keep your head up, read the play and anticipate where the play is heading. most great hockey players have this skill mastered and are always in the right spot at right times. but most of all just take in the first year you play and learn from what you did wrong and right.
