One of the most important things I learned in hockey was to never turn into the boards. I saw several concussions and a broken collarbone to players on my team because they turned to face the boards. We've seen it several times in the NHL this season where the puck is in the corner and a player turns into the boards to play the puck and they get plastered into the boards face-first. If you do need to turn into the boards, make sure you are as flat as possible so if someone does bump you from behind, you are already against the boards and don't go flying headfirst into the edge where the glass meets the boards.
