It would apply more to a defenceman... if someone is telling you to pinch that usually means when in the offensive zone, you leave the blue line to get a loose puck or get involved in the offence... The puck will probably be at the top of the circle or the side boards, this is typically what a "pinch" is and sometimes the defenceman will get caught "pinching".

I guess it could apply to joining the rush, but usually the term "joining the rush" is used here as opposed to pinching. This can be as a support or with the puck. The term "pinch" doesn't relate to "hogging" the puck from my hockey experience. It usually means the defenceman is leaving his normal position on the blueline to take a more active attacking position on offence.

Hope it helps...
