Lol, we didn't have any problems know who was a teammate on the ice ;)


I'll explain why the team was named the Flames later.

Tuesday - 04/29/2014 - Hockey

1 hour Skills Camp
1 hour Scrimmage

Ok, this skills sucked. Literally.

I was sucking air at the end. That hasn't happened in a while.

A lot of full rink sprints. Then down and back sprints.

Ended with a down, back, and down sprint.

Ouch.

Wednesday - 04/30/2014 - Hockey

Skating class - 1 hour
Scrimmage - 1 hour

Backwards crossovers are hard for me.

Backwards crossovers while controlling a puck is even harder...

My legs felt a lot better at this scrimmage. Now if I can only put the puck on the net...

More target practice is needed.

It's called Chicken Picata. From the menu:

A fresh chicken breast sauteed in lemon butter with capers, mushrooms and shrimp. Served over rice.

Tuesday - 06/10/2104 - Hockey

Pro Skills Camp - 1 Hour

Had about 8 USHL prospects doing the powerskating portion with us.

Last half of the class was all short ice game play. 3 on 3 with the nets 20 feet apart, cross ice 5 on 5 but wings and defense couldn't cross the "center" line. So it ended up being 2 defense vs 3 wings on each half. Hard drills that were fun.

Finished with the usual full rink length down and back sprints.
