I hop over no matter what. I've never used the door going on or coming off.

At every NHL game I've ever been to, the defensemen use the door coming off most of the time while the dmen going on hop over. The forwards just do whatever they want. It's more important for the D to have a smooth and quick change.

If you're playing beer league, chances are you're not going to have somebody paying close enough attention to open the door for you every time, so be prepared to hop over. Just be careful not to cut somebody with your skate when you come over the boards.
