At pickup the last few days there have been a bunch of kids that are on high school or travel teams, and one guy who plays college hockey. The high school kids mostly just want to dangle all over or pass it to their buddies, but oddly enough the college kid actually passes to me once in a while and is really cool.
Today he went bar down glove side from a ridiculous angle and all the HS kids were like
The drop-in I go to is consistently about 1/3 guys on the college team. Most of them are way cool, pass a lot, and are always willing to give out pointers and advice. It's especially fun when there's a college guy or two playing net because they'll go all out on him.
