On top of what has already been mentioned, it's key that you not only cover the points as a winger, but also know how to properly break out. Any time you feel the puck is about to come up the boards on your side of the ice, make sure you get to it before the dman, and either chip it out, skate it out or pass it out. If someone on your team gains solid control of the puck deep in your zone, come down low from the point and get open for a pass, keeping speed at all times. All the defending in the world is useless if you can't break out of your zone.
