When I first started playing I assumed that right-handed player = right wing. But over time I've realized this is not the case.

I'm a righty, but prefer to play on the left wing. It's so much easier to make plays as you carry the puck over the blue line. I like to rush the D as fast as I can which causes them to open the gap a little. Then I can either stop/slow up and look for trailing team mates or I can use that momentum to cut to the center with the puck in perfect shooting position.

If it's the center or the R wing bringing it over the blue line, then skate hard to the net and pivot to a backwards skating position as you get to an open passing lane. You can shoot/deflect with your forehand and you'll have a greater reach radius than if you had been skating forwards.

Off-wing is the only way to go!
