I started out playing forward and center. Center is what I always played. When I got to be about 12-to-14 my dad put me on defense, mainly just to learn the position and to learn how to skate backwards—things that you really don’t think about, but it really helps you to learn the game.
But, I’ve played center ever since, and now this year, they’ve moved me to left wing, which I don’t like! But when you get to this level, you don’t have much say in where you play.
