Went to a drop-in session on sunday, was my third one I think?
I am definitely getting more comfortable quick, the biggest thing is I am getting a better idea of where to be, and how to anticipate what guys are going to do a little earlier.
I still got turned inside out a few times by one kid who is maybe 15-16 but he is GOOD. There were a couple college hockey players there and he was even making them look bad so I didn't feel too bad.
I ran over one guy and bumped into one of my teammates once, but I still wasn't even the worst player out there.
Also I still haven't figured out how to stop, I think at this point I'm over-thinking it or something. I think I need to find some ice time and just practice nothing but stopping, the problem is at stick & puck sessions I get distracted and want to go shoot or something instead.
