Keep skating hard. Stick to your game if it has gotten you this far, however it may help you to try and figure out what the void on the team is.
Every team needs a good defensive forward who will kill penalties and pay attention to the defensive side of the game. You may need to adjust your style of game to contribute.
My whole life I had been a scorer, however as I climbed the competitive ladder my scoring abilites faded a little bit at every level and to hang on I transformed myself into a good defensive center who could win faceoffs, kill penalties,forecheck hard and finish my checks.
We all can't be Wayne Gretzky out on the ice...
The bottom line is have fun. Rep hockey holds some great memories for me looking back on them 10+ years later..
