day 2164 – triad locker

i played pretty horrible game of civil war, but still had fun off the ice. all the fun horsing around in the locker room making jokes, discussing pick up draft, chucking tape balls and locking out people. the squirtle squad locker room is never a dull moment. i felt like i at least had my legs under me second game back, but playing centre and forechecking in an olympic-sized rink will do it

day 1819 – basement rink

north shore winter club has one of the worst ice surface i’ve ever seen. it clearly never took hockey players into consideration when players have to lug giant hockey bags through sets of doors, up and down flights of stairs and across other change rooms. stomping down the stairs in full gear to get to the rink, only to see ice is actually a large pool of water. i left it all out there playing one of my stronger games to end the jdp regular season. i had a close call early on that looked like it crossed the goal line. had another opportunity on a two on one where i dove to get good wood on it. despite not scoring, i did many good things including passing, puck battles, forechecks, and just being in position

day 1802 – drink the pink


its an activities overload kind of day and there wasn’t much of a meal at all. lunch was banana pancakes, pregame was banana pancakes, between games was snack wrap and post game was e-noodle and ice cream. my legs gave were long dead my jdp game was over but still must play my heart out for civil war. i ended up scoring the prettiest goal of my life – stole the puck off a forecheck and deked out the goalie to roof it. too bad there was no go pro present to record the epic goal. there’s still so much i need to clean up in my game, but i’m happy i played my heart out today and make a statement. it’s extra sweet for all the criticism i took last week
