No complaints, here
Now that we're hours away from the puck dropping on the 2011-12 NHL season, I figured it about time I started filing posts that deal with housing, specifically some of the autographs we've added. After all, The Hockey Life is much more than one proud hockey dad writing about his son.
This pair of pucks came from the Tampa Bay Lightning's training camp, our first hounding adventure of the campaign. It was on the day of a game, so we thought we might snag some of the Lightning's stars after taking part in a light morning skate. Instead, we found players who wouldn't be playing that night.
After watching the guys skate and run through drills, we made sure we didn't go home empty-handed. Beyond these autographs, from Alexandre Picard (left, on the Lewiston Maineiacs puck) and Daniel Milan, we got to talk to fellow Bolts prospects Cory Conacher and Kevin Quick.
Colin didn't seem to mind, not the least bit. It doesn't matter where they play -- NHL, AHL, juniors or college. To him, a hockey player is a hockey player.
