As somebody once said, "I'm a counter-attacker by nature, not a pre-emptive strike man."

Roughing aside, I skate low to the ground for long, powerful strides and right wing breakouts. My speed helps me drop back to defence when needed (ie, when the other team gets the breaks), too.

Some people want to play hockey without learning to skate properly first, I enjoy (well, not always!) the discipline and learning aspect of skating - mastering the techniques slowly with lots of practice sessions on my own. But in a game, I aim for flat out speed.
