Found the last 3 P46 sticks in Quebec. Hit all the stores in the area. Also found a Warrior W71 curve is so close and still in production. My understanding is that its a Malkin pro stock clone.

Quebec was a lot of fun. Boys made it to Quarters but were eliminated by a very solid Quebec area team that lost in the championship.

We just finished up states and did better then expected. Beat the Jr. Kings once and then lost to them with 6 seconds left in the 3rd very close game. If we had beaten them we would have made the finals. Kings won states.

He started playing roller again. Playing for middle school. Also playing on a travel team that is all kids from his Jr. Sharks team.

Already panicked about next years tryouts.

Today was cut day. M survived. We lost 5 skaters from last years team and it was a very hard day. A very succesfull AA club in the area had a mass defection to our club. We had 1 kid from our team who is now going to boarding school and 1 who moved away before tryouts. So in all 7 new skaters to the team. This time of year is the absolute worse i felt so bad for 2 of the boys that my eyes got a little watery when I saw them getting pulled aside before the list was posted. Those boys had been on the team for 4 years. Having to tell your child I know hes your friend but at tryouts you have no friends on the other side just sucks. M smoked one of the kids who was cut a few times.

M has been playing a lot of baseball lately as well. Hes been on some tournament teams and its so different from hockey. Here in Cali there are so many travel ball teams and not making a team just means you make a different team. There is so much less stress with baseball. I had prepared M for the worst and told him he would be able to play more ball and we wouldnt be as broke. He was a ball of nerves all weekend and tried to mask his happiness when he found out.

Being a hockey parent is tough. On the flip side now that its bantams I get to worry about concussions. The 04 team had a kid who got 3 last year and cant play anymore. Hes done permanetly. Well theres always baseball.

Bought a SPARX sharpening machine. This thing is awesome, should have done it years ago.
Deciding factor was Pure Hockey(our only shop) said they were going to a flat $10 rate for a sharpen. I don’t remember the last time I paid for a sharpen and that’s good, because I never knew what I was walking out with half the time. Oldtimers at the shop, the ones I knew were fine(most of them), but there is so much turnover and never knew what you were walking into. When that happened, was a coin flip.
Abs skates were sharpened at Pure on Thursday and I put the edge checker on them before running them through the SPARX and couldn’t believe how far off the edges were. Took 8 passes with the SPARX to get them even.
LM is coming over this morning to run his skates through(we have a drop in at 12:30 today). Going to check his edges before. Though he’s terrible about keeping his skates clean.

Very cool I found this. I played hockey from age 4 through high school. I played for lots of teams over the years manly AA and single A travel teams. Played high school and won 2 back2back state championships. Hockey was my life when I was young. I figured out young hockey and golf were my sports and I was damn good at both. I was one of the top ranked juniors in WV as a kid. I had a few college hockey offers but manly golf with schools all over the country wanting me. Manly d2 a few smaller D1 schools though. I didn’t want to go far from home and signed with a local D2 school with a pretty good golf scholarship. I miss hockey everyday and going to the rink. I’ve played a few throw back nights and can’t tell you the feeling of getting back on skates. There’s nothing like hockey because you can go throw a football or go shoot hoops anywhere.

On the ice or motorcycle? Are you hanging up the skates or just healing up?

That sucks, I did not know that... Sounds painful, hope the recovery has gone well.... You were playing multiple leagues/nights a week, right?

I was playing on 3 teams, E.J., averaging 3-4 games a week. Last summer, took a check and had an awkward fall, broke the fibula, the ankle dislocated and my foot turned 180 degrees.

A week later they did surgery, plate and 6 titanium screws in my fibula, 8 weeks off my feet and then another 6 in a walking boot.

Leg seems to be completely healed, the issue seems to be the ligaments. A year after surgery and my ankle is no where near what it was. I fear my competitive days may be over, hoping maybe to get it good enough to play in an over-40 league or a house league at some point.

Probably a lot more info than you wanted, but there it is anyway.
