The attack is made up of three players who are only offensive players. Attackmen can only stay on the offensive end of the field and play with short sticks (30" shaft). An attackman can be a short but fast player but also a big player who can fire fast shots. Attackmen prefer more padding because of all the checks they take. Most attackmen use long arm guards to protect their arms from checks from opposing defenseman. The attackmen's job is to try and score goals or create opportunities to score. Attackmen use different dodges to create space from their defender in order to score goals. Usually attackmen start their dodge from behind the goal.
