One other VERY important thing to be aware of on line changes......
When you decide to come off the ice and you are calling for a replacement (like someone said, yell, "Right Wing, Right Wing" or whatever your position is), when you get to within about 20 feet of the bench.......COMMIT to the line change!
Don't get 10 feet from the bench and then decide to turn around and rejoin the play. That is frequently how penalties happen.
If you notice an odd-man rush forming as you're coming off the ice, if you've already committed to the change, it is faster for you to just skate the 10 feet to the bench and let your replacement take off than for you to stop, turn around, and drag your tired ass back into the play.
If you're going to come off, come off. Don't change your mind mid-change......especially if you're in a group.
