day 1486 – five star 

just got confirmation that my fifth star has been added to the team hard hat. the amount of stars beside my name is a pretty good display of what i have accomplished thus far. i’m proud of the improvement and success i had in my first full year, but also not settling for anything less than what i can be. i’m predicted to continue to grow as a hockey player, but where that growth and progress takes place is not yet determined

day 1482 – playoff pump

was super pumped for my playoff game and ready to play hard as i took my freshly retaped stick and sharpened skates to the rink. i played the strongest game i possibly could and had the firepower from the very beginning with a goal and an assist to show for. i skated on the top line, earned myself powerplay time and also awarded player of the game. even though the loss tonight ended the chick’s season, there’s still tons to take away from this season. i have taken great strides this past season and it’s really an accomplishment when the guys in the locker room nominated me as most improved player. better yet, even guys i play against are acknowledging my the progress i’ve shown

day 1330 – pregame meal

sticking with my simple pregame meal before a playoff game. my first season is officially over after tonight’s loss but i enjoyed my rookie season and is happy with the successes and improvements that came with it. scoring my first career goal was a big one for me and i only got more comfortable as the season went on. i filled the stat sheet burying three goals and adding four stars beside my name on the hard hat. i’d say it was a good rookie season for me and exceeded all my helpful teammates’ expectations. i’m really looking forward to the spring season and drop ins to see where my sophomore season will take me

day 1317 – quadruple star

second playoff game in four days is ample of hockey for me this week. i was very reserved going into this game but that was all erased when i got my fourth star on this hat. i skated hard, scored my first career playoff goal and my nicest goal by far – a one timer without hesitation. took two bodychecks from my own teammate that knocked me to the ice; i’m sure i’ll feel them tomorrow. that’s enough late night for the week, i really need the sleep to heal up

day 1242 – season stat

at the halfway mark of my chicks and sticks season so it’s a good time to do a midseason evaluation for myself. happy to see the stats beside number sixteen has grown. i’ve done just about everything in my rookie season – score, assist, block shots, get cross-checked, bodycheck and even get two player of the game. i’ve witnessed my teammates going the extra mile to back me up when someone takes a run at me from behind. looking forward to the second half of the season. one thing i must do better of is keeping my gloves on my hand

day 1234 – hat worthy

adding another star to my name after tonight’s game. had good ice time and fought hard for that hat. i’ll be first to admit i wasn’t fully ready for tonight’s game after eating at gyu kaku with fellow rdl execs, but still got it done. this meeting is more of a celebratory dinner to appreciate everyone’s effort, carrying their own weight and make it another smooth season. it got wild in a hurry when we realized we ordered too much drinks and had to chug the rest down. i was on my best behaviour for the better part considering the amount of food presented in front of me, but even then the amount put into my stomach makes me feel way too fat

day 1197 – first career goal

i’m officially on the stat sheet with my first career goal and seven games into the season. the goal was hugely satisfying as i roofed it over the goalie; he probably underestimated my ability to lift the puck off the ice. i had a strong game with good chances which earned me player of the game. the referee was quick to give me the game played puck and i didn’t waste any time in labelling it. it was a busy and productive running around town; i need more days like this and i need to remind myself to keep my spirit high
