Ok. Here's the deal. What is your GO-TO defensive load out for competitive LG play. I am curious to see the vast differences within the LG community at this position? What is your identity as a D-MAN? Are you a stay at home shut down defenseman? Or are you a smaller and faster offensive minded defenseman, or a good mix of both? I'll start with mine. Two-way Defenseman 6'3" 200lbs Heavy Hitter 2 Hockey IQ 2 Back-Skate Big enough that I can hit and play the body around the slot and along the boards. Just fast enough to keep pace with forwards. Nimble enough to be effective in the offensive zone and to skate out of trouble. Passing is a great and the slap shot is accurate enough to score in the high slot and/or position low shots off the goalie pads. In the end, the load-out traits are a real give and take. What is your favorite defensive load out for LG. Share em' below and vote on the best Defenseman Class in NHL 19!!
