I always ask for left wing, less because I'm a left handed shot and more because I'm very strong skating out of the zone from the left side. (As most people are.) It also puts me on my forehand to receive a pass.

Figure out which side you prefer and be the first to suggest where you'd like to play.

Avoid playing center if you don't know how to play center and the rest of the players DO know how center is to be played.

Having said that, when I first got back into hockey 3+ years ago, I felt more comfortable playing D because I could skate backwards quite well and I thought people would prefer to play F. Now, I find it's hard to get slotted into D because people who play D really prefer it. (And you want D who are solid handling the puck.) Go figure....
