This plus do you really think ANY coach is going to say "I want you to play a very one dimensional game"? Most of the time it's going to be expected that everyone has bought in and is going to work hard on both sides of the puck so two-way play is going to be a necessity. Not every player is a good two-way player, not every player has the work ethic to be an effective two-way player, but every player is expected to try to be a two-way player. Hockey is a two-way sport and this new phrase "two-way player" is terribly overused. Every player needs to play two-ways; some just do so more consistently and at a higher level. I doubt you'll have to play as conservatively as on your rec league team, but if you find a comfortable medium between being the "pure goal scorer" and a "two-way" player, I'm sure you'll be your most effective and make the best impression on your potential new team and coaches.
