Start hitting in the corners...little by little. When the other team is fighting for the puck and you're going to go cover him (as a D man) start using your body and get your feet wet in the sense that you start hitting comfortably in the corners. Once you're fine there your confidence will go up and you can start rubbing people out on the boards when they come down.

As far as open ice hitting I only did it a couple times, and those were the times that the other guy was just recieving a pass and I read the play perfectly so that as soon as he got the puck I hit him. So as long as you read the play right you can go for the hit...if you fall down and he lost the puck you did your job..just make sure you don't pinch in too far and lose your position.
