Back to the regularly scheduled broadcast...

Lead the player with your pass
After you make a pass, don't admire your pass- skate hard to open ice
Recognize when the opposing team has a guy that is running around- go to the open area of the ice
Don't criticize or feel free to coach the other guys on your team
Know who you are substituting for- no too many men penalties
On a delayed penalty- don't be the first guy to jump over the boards. Know to nominate a scoring forward to come on- as long as his last shift didn't just end
Support, encourage and prop up your teammates after a good shift
Go hard to the net with your stick down, but don't get in too deep to the goaler
Come back and help your D- be available for the outlet pass
Know where the other team's best player is on the ice at all times
Be hard on your stick
When playing D stay square to the onrushing forward
Keep your head up and take what the goalie gives you
When you are in close, lift the puck, the goalie takes away the bottom of the net
Get your shot off quick- no need for a giant windup
Stay emotionally on an even keel- keep yourself from going ballistic because you got hit, no penalty was called etc.
Stop crying and berating the refs
Have fun in the room- poke fun at guys- enjoy the camraderie- we are not doing this for a living- hockey is supposed to be fun- you'll miss it when you are too old to play anymore!
