It finally happened... I'm an ice hockey player.

After numerous threads I started on here, I finally got everything I needed and went to a stick n puck today after hitting a public skate.

At first, the skating took some getting used to, but I managed to get it down for the most part. I felt really weird putting on so much gear not really knowing what the best order of operation was, but it was a learning process.

Stick-handling an ice hockey puck is really fun because it glides so much compared to roller. Taking shots with it was a little different as well (though this might have been due to it being close to 6 years since I've skated and shot a puck regardless of surface).


I'm in love. I can't wait to hit a pickup session on Monday. Why did I not do this earlier? Dumb....

Haha good advice, unless you live in Australia or South Africa where people would assume when you say hockey, you mean field hockey.

I play a lot of "Ball hockey" while standing in line at the bank with my hands in my pockets. .... nobody notices so the hell with it ... you only live once.
