Been enjoying catching up on the high school hockey scene over here in northeast Winnipeg since I got back on the beat in November.

It’s always interesting talking with coaches and the kids playing at this level. They’re serious about hockey, but still playing it for the love of the game rather than a drive to make it to the Big Show. The players and coaches talk honestly about what they’re doing right, and where they can improve. All these kids are balancing their school, hockey, and regular life schedules and all seem genuinely excited about lacing up for each game.

I’m certainly looking forward to following up with these kids after the holiday break as they make their playoff pushes.

Check ’em out if you’re so inclined!
