A lot of the guys joke about me being slow on the backcheck or not playing defense (some guys call me Hull aka Brett)...but I actually take pride in not being scored on and have a pretty high plus-minus at the end of the season. The key is to play your position and trust your teammates. Far more goals get scored when you "help out" the defense as a forward and go below the hash marks to chase the puck carrier.

Really, there's not much you can work on at the low levels of hockey to become better defensively other than learning to read plays and positioning.
