If you put in the time (especially in the gym), your size won't hold you back. With a low, wide stance, and the muscle to back it up, you could be very hard to knock over/get off the puck (think Marty St. Louis). Good luck.
I think this is the best advice you can get. I even had big guys falling OVER me, as I get so low as soon as I realize a hit comes, that they do not have anything to hit, just air. Other then that, just be as elusive as you can.
