You don't need to be big to play D. If you have good ice vision, enjoy quarterbacking plays, got good understanding of sick use and body position, D would be suitable. You get a lot less rushing chances, so if you're a more pass the puck to me and I'll take it to the O zone kind of player, then be a winger. If don't enjoy playing D, but still hustles rushing up and getting back, then play center.
