Advice for a goalie making the switch to forward/defense

I've been playing goalie for almost 12 years now but lately I've been trying my hand at skating as a forward, with a couple of tries at defense. I had gotten a little bit tired of playing in net, and skating out has given me a new perspective on the game and has been a lot of fun.

It has been difficult though, as although I've been playing hockey for years it is an entirely different animal than playing in net. Any advice from anyone else who has made the switch? I've been reading around the noob threads but haven't seen anything directly related to this.

Any help is appreciated!
