D-zone positioning

Simply, the center should be between the puck and the net cheating slightly toward the puck carrier. You will find this will always put you in good position for the breakout as well.

Kritter471 - If a D-man has cheated in on your side you do need to pick him up. Just be aware that at some point someone will rotate back and he is your responsibility.

If a D-man is playing extra deep in the neutral zone, be aware he may enter the zone late, but there is no need to "cover" him if he stays out there. If your team is smart, break out to his side and you should have an easy exit out of your zone. Lucky you, you can play the boards high without worrying about a pinching defenseman and take the time to make a great breakout pass.

Good luck!
