Normally when I see new players who are good athletes and/or played pond hockey, they struggle at first with the defensive zone play. By the end of a season though, they have it figured out. But players who are over the heads will tend to struggle year after year.
I like this.
As your offense skills develop , you can always help the team with good defense skills.
Its not that hard to learn to protect your zone, chase after loose pucks, poke check.
