Left skate MUST go on before the right. That's it.

Goalie here. I have to put on right skate, left skate, right pad, left pad every time. And I have to be completely dressed before my team is finished dressing. I like to be waiting by the door before we go out to play.

But my biggest ritual is before every game and before every period, I will trace the outline of my net with my stick from bottom to crossbar and back down the opposite side, and then back to origin again. Then I will tap the center of each post and cross bar twice, while I say a prayer asking for God to remind me that this is supposed to be fun, to allow me to play to the best of my ability, and for me not to get hurt.

Every game. Every practice. Every sticktime.

I use to have a lot when I was younger, but the only thing I really do now is switch sticks when I'm in a slump, or change the colour of tape.

ha you reminded me of what i do too sometimes. I didn't think of it earlier because i am so used to it i forgot it was something I do.

I have 2 sticks when I play that are the same, same shaft, same blades etc. I number them as 1 and 2. The number 1 is my number 1 stick i prefer even though they are the same.

Crazy I guess.

I too change the color of tape sometimes, I just went back to white tape from black.

I think hockey players are nuts quite honestly.

Peanut Butter and Honey sandwich on whole wheat bread.

Put my sock tape on the same way.

Touch the ND Knockoff "Play Like a Champion Today" sign with my stick as I walk to locker rooms.


I will have to try the changing sticks thing tonight. I have been in an little bit of a slump myself.

When I take a face-off, I always have to make a little circle around the face-off dot while holding my stick with only my left hand.
