Hyper extended my wrist this way and I was in constant pain for over 18 months. Now I just use my ass or hips. There's natural cushion there for a reason. For the most part my falls are blown tires which end up in baseball slides. No need to brace anything.

As for places to fall: Knees, hips, elbows. They all have padding if you're suited up correctly and will absorb impact a lot better than anything else. Best to take things at an angle and not a straight down impact with the ice if at all possible. If anything try to hit these first so they take most of the force.
