day 2026 – open practice

squirtle and fishsticks merge to hold an open practice so both teams can get ready for their respective game twos. also a good time to run through defensive drills to since i’m put on defense next friday. for some odd reason, my shin pad and skate tongue was causing a havoc for my left foot. lots of ice this weekend so i’m glad there’s no powerskating during this long weekend

day 2025 – team squirtle

finally a group picture of the squirtle squad comes during game one of the playoffs. it was a close game one but good thing we took the win in the end. we were neck and neck for most of the game until we busted out with two unanswered goals. i detest this team because they have the dirtiest players who plays with no remorse. the guy who i almost got into a fight with last game came at me again with an outstretched arm and wanted to land an open ice hit when the puck is nowhere near. just glad we got the win against an unworthy team. the commitment was real when half the team including myself transported to play game one of fishsticks still wearing most of our gear. that’s enough activities in one day; i’m exhausted and ready to pass out

day 1968 – fishy game

i have missed quite a few games this season due to vacation and illness, but here i am playing in the final fishsticks game of 2018. this is one big team full of dirty players and yappers who pounced on our short bench with three quick goals. despite being the underdog, we slowly chipped away and eventually ended the game with a tie. i tallied our first goal and it could have been easily a hat trick. i was robbed on two point blank opportunities. i was gased by the end because of our short bench, but it definitely felt good contributing on the score sheet once again

day 1915 – hockey is back

it’s good to be back at the rink after missing the past few hockey games due to overlapping schedule. i was afraid i’d be slow coming out of the gate but i held up and even registered an assist. the scoresheet isn’t really an accurate representation of the high scoring game. it was a fun game but man i’m tired from invigilating a blackbelt test that went wrong in far too many ways. being put in the spot to do something i haven’t practiced in three years isn’t exactly cool. good thing i managed to do it and come out unscathed

day 1870 – fishstick opener

watching the zamboni clean the ice before the fishsticks season opener. it’s a late game but i’ll play the game and hope that i get some shut eye before i go to work. happy to report i recorded my first point of the season with a three-two win for the team. majority of the roster remains the same as last with the addition of four players. i like it in the current tier and hope we don’t get tiered up

day 1712 – most improved


wrapped up vachl season with a loss, a game which we could have taken with the team’s build. regardless of the scoreboard, it was made fun by the good bunch i’m surrounded by. won myself a drawstring bag being handed the most improved player award. it’s been a a weird season for me having spent much time on the disabled list after a broken thumb, but came back strong to finish the season. hung out with some teammates to catch part of daniel and henrik’s final canucks game ever and then back on the ice for civil war opener. my legs are dead tired from too much action

day 1686 Рskate tongue 

playing for the first time with my skate tongue in and i kind of like how the skate is more snug on me. the order of putting on gear will have to be slightly altered but that’s something to get used to. not feeling great after a barely catching any sleep, but still had to push for a rushed deadline today. took a nap alongside some tylenol and even then just wasn’t quite enough to be in game shape. my reaction and timing was off, but i did play a well defensive game covering for centres and coming back for odd man rushes. tempted to take a little time off work if possible; a little rest would be nice for my current tired soul
