Positioning help

I need some basic positioning help. I play forward, 4on4 inline hockey. I always go to the net in offense, and watch the backdoor for rebounds and passes, I'm not the best puck handler so I don't really see the puck much.

Step one, hang up the wheels, and get on the ice!

If you're a forward in 4 on 4 you really don't need to worry too much about being in the right spot. There should be a lot of room, so just find some open ice (err, floor) and give your teammate a passing option.

A lot of offense comes from the D in 4 on 4 hockey... watch for one of your D-men to pinch into the high slot.

Lastly, remember to go hard to the net if all else fails.

When you have an offensive 2-on-1 and you're not carrying the puck, give the carrier an option to pass and don't always just rush to the net.

A lot of times, the carrier can't pass through the defender if you stay parallel with him and thus it's better to trail behind the play a little.

That made me chuckle.

You're playing a 4 on 4 game. There's so much open space, positioning just means you need to get open.

I got a kick out of this post because this kind of sums it up.

It isn't really feasible to explain general positioning over a forum. I'm sure many here could help you with specific positioning questions but vague ones will be difficult to answer.
