I'm a forward and block more shots than all of our defensemen except for maybe one. I might throw a leg out but I never fully go down, he'll always go down when in position to do so. I tend to block more w/my shin pads while in a shooting lane so they go mostly unnoticed. I've caught some big clappers directly into my thighs (w/o wearing padding) and right on the side of my rib cage (again, no padding). Aside from some soreness and long-lasting bruising, it's all good.

Many of them turn into immediate possession for us, and I've even turned a couple into goals because I ended up having breakaways from our blue line.
