Another Year of Hockey Begins

Tonight was our first game of the year. Ben is in midget this year, so the boys are bigger and faster. It’s fun hockey to both coach and watch.

I’m coaching again this year as well, along with Don Wilcox. It’s a co-coaching arrangement which is going to be a great learning opportunity. I’ve been coaching teams against Don for at least six years and have always respected him and his style of coaching.

Following the tradition of Don’s teams in the past, we will be called the Mooseheads. Apparently I get to wear a goofy moose hat at tournaments.

We won the game 5-1, which is a nice start to the year. Ben came within a whisker of scoring a goal and played a darn good game.
