Defensive - cover the point man on your side, don't get sucked down too low, when in doubt just stay within a stick length of him, be ready for a breakout pass along your boards

Offensive - forecheck hard when the puck is in your corner, get yourself open for a pass (i.e. not standing behind their guys), make a good pass if you don't have a shooting lane, take a quick shot if you do

That's about it. The most important thing I want my wingers to do is to cover their point man so he is not a shooting option, break out the puck, and get in on the forecheck as fast and hard as possible so we can pressure them and establish the zone.
