As a winger the most vulnerable position for the opponent coming in on me is the neutral zone near my own blueline. I'd always get guys with their heads semi down dipsy doodling trying to get around my D trying to get into our zone and I'd just gear up and get to work. For now, I'd say let the hitting come and get used to it naturally. Then stay alert from the beginning of your season watching and taking notice of the different ways guys can get their clocks cleaned.Keep your elbows down and explode up into them. Make sure the speeds are good too. Open ice hits arent the smoothest if the guy is an Adam Oates/Mike Ribiero type dangler.
