Wondering if I should just start another and hope I can play NHL preseason to prove myself.
Try joining a team that has less Dmen. When you are selecting your team it shows you how many of that position they already have. If you do good in the preseason, you almost always start in the NHL (though I have been sent down to the AHL even while leading the NHL in scoring over halfway through the season).
