Learn composure

Im playing in the lower leagues in Sweden as a defender, i am a decent skater(good top speed,decent agility and decent acceleration), and good stickhandler and a good wristshot. Started the season as a second pairing defenseman, playing physical and play easy. First part of season i was doing good but in the last two months im struggling to play against tough forechecking, often i get pressured and throw away the puck to a turnover or a icing. My coach had me off the squad to play with the reserves and told me i need to gain confidence and composure,i tried to focus on defense and making smart plays but the lack of tempo in the games and the weak movement off the puck from teammates makes me play like ****.

I started the pre-season excellent with combined strong physical play with playmaking abilities but now all that is gone. I would say my major weaknesses now is picking the right decision and being calm with the puck.
