Do you play pond hockey?

It's not really pond hockey... but Toronto has a lot of artificial ice surfaces that allow players to get some pickup going. I try to get out to Nathan Phillip Square a couple of times in December. They usually leave the Christmas lights on, making things easier to see. The trick with Nathan Phillip Square is that hockey is technically not allowed, but pretty much everyone knows that games break out once the rink guards leave. Just watch out for the zamboni ramp, and the horrible ice (since they don't flood the ice before closing).
The other hockey pads are further west, and are too far for me to travel to and from.
It's a lot of fun... noncompetitive and not really hockey. Playing always reminds me why I took up the game in the first place.
