Hey guys. I am wondering what it takes to make a checking line work. I believe I read defense and physical stats are a priority... Is this true? And are Grinders the player role recommended? And what makes a Grinder? Seems that a combination of Physical, Spirit, and Endurance seem to put a player in green for the role. Also is it just me or are there not many grinders to choose from haha.
Thanks ahead of time!

You hit the nail on the head.  A Checking line wants to be Physical and have high Spirit; Defense and Endurance help too.

 

Grinders are good candidates for a Checking line, and you can always change a Player's Role from the Action drop down menu on the Team page.  Personally, I only change a player's role if they are equal to or greater than another category (e.g. a player has a full green bar in both TwoWay and Grinder).  This may be tough at the LIHL level though.

Energy is more about big hits, fights and the like whereas checking is more defensive focused with physical play a part of that.
