Defense.

Best stay-at-home defender I ever saw.

Left wing. One of the faster guys on the team so I am able to forecheck hard and cause turnovers in the opponents zone.

Right Wing. All about crashing the net and doing the dirty work

I play left wing mainly but also play my off wing on right. I have a fantastic rink wide backhand pass as I use a relatively straight blade.

I like playing left wing best and right wing second best.

I play goal in the winter and D in the summer. I tried playing forward but I find I just end up reverting to defensive behavior, probably because goal is my natural position and I appreciate good D.

i played goal for most of my highschool career and part of it i played forward. i skate up and play any position for summer and goalie if we need it.

im probably best at goalie or rw

it really helps as a goalie skating up and as a skater playing goalie. it gives you a different perspective

I usually play the shutdown defenseman role playing LD, this is mostly due to the fact that most of the teams I play on there's an amazingly talented offensive defenseman who can't even point out where his own end is if he had to.

I prefer playing RD, I can rush a lot easier on that side and find I have more lanes, but hey, you gotta do what's best for the team.

Right wing, but sometimes also left wing since we have a lot more righties on our team.

I would love to play defense but my backwards skating has to improve a lot before I even think about it.

I prefer playing LW/RW but it seems like everybody I play with loves playing forward, so I often get put back on D.

Right Wing or Left Wing -- My teammates usually make me play left because I shoot left but for some reason I just feel more comfortable on Right.

I play rover.

Center really, but I'm pretty much the fastest in the league, so I'm able to be about anywhere I want to be and not be a liability defensively and such.

And yes, I'm honestly in a lower league then I should be. But it's a good group of guys.
