Power forward (ice hockey) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (228 words)
Power forwards tend to be proficient stickhandlers and skaters who shoot the puck well and, at the same time, are capable of delivering crushing body checks and may also fight occasionally.
Power forwards also tend to be very difficult to knock off possession of the puck, hence their ability to "power through" opposing defenders.
Smaller skilled forwards, who are talented offensively but lack the strength of power forwards, are often easier to defend because they can be pushed around, knocked off the puck, or are more succeptible to intimidation.
