Gonna go skate with former NHLer Brent Severyn
 
He runs an adult drop-in here in Dallas. First 1/4 of the drop-in is skillsets such as drills, the last 3/4 is a controlled scrimmage.

Should be fun. I haven't laced them up in a few months, so it's time to hit the ice again!

Awesome, have fun! I've found playing with/against players of that caliber to be an extremely humbling experience.

Which rink does he run this at, and is it a regular thing? I don't live there anymore, but I come back occasionally, and this sounds like great fun.

If any ex-NHLers run a clinic in Vancouver it'd be pretty packed. Should be a lot nicer in American cities though.

Tell us about your experience when you get back!

It's out of McKinney right now, but I think he also goes to Frisco. Plano is currently closed due to much needed renovations.

Yeah he was pretty cool. Typical hockey guy, easy-going, forgiving to us adults who make stupid mistakes and don't have his game knowledge, and in general pretty fun to be around.

I think he wants to go into coaching from the looks of it.

He has his own business and owns a half-rink that specializes in hockey training, both dry and frozen.

That's an understatement. This past weekend I filled in net for an "A" travel team that played against a team that was comprised of mostly former NCAA Div I players that scored 15-20 goals per season. It was 8-0 after the 1st period where I faced 20 shots and I honestly didn't play that badly.
