A 20 year old has 30-40 years of good hockey ahead of them, plenty of time to learn...put in the time, and you WILL get better. If a fat, old bum like me can do it - you most certainly can.
Well said. Can't make up for lost time. I do believe that if your in shape, work at your skills, work your a** off on the ice, and play smart you can be a productive Mens league player well into your 50's. I plan on it
