The Hockey Life: Trip to the rink

Photo by CMS 37

Just because it's the middle of summer doesn't mean there's no way we can get in a little hockey. With the NHL draft held last Sunday, many NHL teams are staging their rookie and/or development camps. Down here in Hockey Bay, the Lightning are no different.

We stopped by on opening day yesterday, making the ride over to Brandon. To get the most bang for our buck, we even completed a few hockey errands there, getting Colin's skates sharpened, and buying a new pair of gloves and socks for his upcoming travel season.

But rather than tell you what we did, here are a few links that will show you what we did:

~ Taking an old-school approach with some photos;

~ getting a better handle on the panoramic feature on our camera; and

~ snagging a couple of pucks signed by the Lightning's top pick, Jonathan Drouin.


  1. Here's a little look at that Photoshop sepia toning I mentioned on Facebook.

  2. That looks pretty nice. Thanks. Wonder how it would look on some old NHL photos from the 1930s or so.
