To people who started playing ice-hockey later down the road

I would just like to add that natural athletic ability makes a huge difference. I have absolutely none so I have had to work harder than most people. While after 16 months, my skating is slow, choppy and I have no agility, I have improved exponentially from when i started and I keep getting better. I'll never light it up, but I'm gradually becoming a solid shut down defenseman where I can play well in the lowest rec leagues and survive in higher C leagues. If you aren't a natural athlete, trying to think the game and develop hockey sense will help you a ton.
