I moved from wing to centre a couple years ago, and back to wing this year and the biggest thing is to stay in position, especially in your own end. You might find yourself lower than you're suposed to be, seeing as you just converted from centre so the biggest thing is to not get sucked down low. Stay on your point and you should be fine. Always keep your feet moving too, even if you don't have the puck. That way when you get a break-out pass you aren't stationary.
thanks man, it'll take some time. appreciate the advice
