NHL Hockey

It's tough being a hockey goon.

"If you want to play hockey, learn to score goals. Otherwise your hands gets so sore."
Gino Odjick

Look out for that puck!

"The puck hit me and broke the nose in four places. It was over on the side of my face. The doctor grabbed my forehead with one hand and gave the nose a push with the other one. Yeah, it kind of woke me up. Medieval times (no freezing) but it worked."
Edmonton Oilers' Domenic Pittis, after getting hit in the face with a puck at the Oilers' morning skate.


Would you want to be stopping a puck flying towards your head at 100 miles per hour?
"The only job worse is a javelin catcher at a track-and-field meet."
Gump Worsley, former goalie.


What about without a facemask?
"If you jump out of a plane without a parachute, does that make you brave? No, I think that makes you stupid. I will never play without the mask again."
Jacques Plante, first goalie in the NHL to wear a face mask while playing hockey.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
