day 1816 – short bench

i got home from two games of hockey and collapsed on the floor. first of the two was as epic as it will ever get: an ultra short bench with six players and a goalie. one sub through forty five minutes of play and my legs were so done after jabba i didn’t think i had it in me to play a second game. luckily my mental state overpowered my physical and forced my legs to keep skating until the end of civil war. i ended up playing a pretty solid game and scoring another goal. now leading all rookies in both goals , points and shots on goal. after all the physical output, i deserve all the rest i can get tomorrow

day 1746 – ripped off


being a saturday, i hadn’t had much to eat all day – a peanut butter toast and almond milk. hence i was really looking forward to some good food at the exec season ender. that was not the case. when our 7:30pm reservation time came around, only eleven people were on time. as a result, everything was delayed and we didn’t get our first dish until quarter past eight. by then i had to stop eating because i had hockey to play. i stayed as long as i could, i mingled and chatted, but that doesn’t change i only had one gyoza down my stomach. needless to say, i left for hockey hungry and feeling ripped off. i played and scored, and left the rink for food so my stomach can stop eating itself 

day 1493 – conquered war


game three of civil war playoffs settled everything tonight and my jade rabbits prevailed. my team took home the cup and i scored a beauty driving to the net to roof is short side. a goal that i am proud of because i did everything right with no hesitation. i played one of my better games but not the best because i had a glorious one timer that was robbed and missed on a tap in. my legs were feeling so sore and giving in; i find myself one step slower than my norm. i certainly enjoyed a fun summer drop in season where i started on the so called noob line, but realistically i can hang in and confidently play with the second liners. i’m excited and ready to rock for the upcoming winter season

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 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
