Start playing hockey and you’ll never stop. We promise.
We hear stories all of the time about the different ways that people got into the game of hockey – whether it’s because their family or friends were playing, they wanted to be like their idols they grew up watching on television, they wanted more exercise, or they wanted to skate fast or shoot a puck really hard, there’s one similarity between all stories – they never looked back.
Once you start playing this country’s great game, we’re willing to bet that you won’t be able to stop.
The rush you get when you step onto a fresh sheet of ice for the first time, or when the puck hits the twine in the net for a big goal, or when you learn a new deke and pull it off successfully. The game is full of great pleasures, and there’s no sport in the world that can match up to hockey.
That’s why men or women such as the gentleman below continue playing the game throughout their life, because there’s simply no quitting.
It’s ingrained in our very being as Canadians, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
