Ever since I was a child, my parents have kept me involved in sports. Growing up I played many sports, but the one sport that stuck out to me was hockey. I have been playing hockey at a competitive level for the past 11 years and while playing hockey has given me the experience of being in a team environment, it has also taught me to work towards a common goal. Through the past 11 year of playing competitive hockey, I have had some incredible experiences that have morphed me into a more well rounded individual. Playing hockey at such a competitive level has granted me many opportunities that many other people my age haven't had the chance to do.
Ice Hockey is one of the most entertaining sports you could see or play. I would only assume most people love at least one sport but there has been quite an issue on which sport is the best. Ice Hockey is debatably the best sport ever created because of its intensity of the sport, the amazing experience of playing at a competitive level, and Hockey is always changing. People who watch hockey, without knowing the rules of the game, usually can understand that the speed and intensity of the game is very high. On average, a normal hockey player at any level will spend about forty-five seconds on the ice.
Roller hockey and floor hockey are also really popular in the summer and spring. There are many leagues for hockey, in the winter there are numerous leagues with various levels based on your skill. Coaches are good at advancing players to the next level, coaches have usually played the game themselves so they can provide players with a lot of hockey knowledge to make them better players. Being on a team of any type is special but being on a hockey team is even better. Being on a hockey team is very special

During the interview, I asked him several questions pertaining to sports psychology. During the interview, he stated he started playing hockey at the age of three. He stated his grandfather played, and he sort of idealized him growing up.
Failure is not easy to cope with. Failure gives people a sense of apprehension, a lack of confidence that they are not capable of achieving their goals. Although it does not feel the best at the time, this is where success is made. Starting off my ice hockey career at the age of 5 I met many new faces and did not realize at the time that one sport would have such an impact on my life. Through the ups, and the downs, ice hockey has taught me how to be a hard worker, contribute to society, and most of all, how to handle situations when the tide is against you.
During my life time I encountered many amazing people. One man who I admire most and has influenced my life a great deal is my friend, Billy Selingo. Billy is twenty-seven years old and currently attending Manhattanville College to receive his master’s degree. Billy had always been a very talented hockey player, he competitively played at Holderness and Selects Academy at South Kent. Once he completed his post-grad year it was off to Manhattanville College, where he competed at the division three hockey level.
During my years playing hockey as a kid, I experienced many stressful situations both first hand and observed through teammates and coaches. One occasion in particular stands out, mostly due to how I was able to influence it. I was playing goal for a junior hockey team in BC, and my goalie partner at the time was very intense and emotional person. Certain things that were seemingly insignificant to me and to the other teammates, he took personally and often let it affect his state of mind and even his performance at times. Things like, players shooting pucks into his net at then end of drills and players celebrating or cheering after scoring goals in practice would really get under his skin.

The NHL has seen its share of magical moments since 1917, when the league was founded. It was clear that these moments were going to make history as they were happening, whether we're talking about a team that won the Stanley Cup after several decades or about Wayne Gretzky's pass to Gordie Howe to achieve the most scored goals. Some of these events didn't seem big at their time, but as history sowed us, they were moments that changed the game in important ways. Here is a look at the 5 best moments in NHL history, the ones that remind us why we love hockey. 5.
Ice hockey and skating are inseparable, and the popularity of the game has grown significantly over the years. The game originally started in Canada and the US, but it has spread to many other parts of the world as well. Playing the game involves speed skating and a punk that moves very fast on the court. Ice hockey skates come in handy to make the game possible and enjoyable. Here are some facts that might be worth knowing about these skates.
Today I am honored to be standing here presenting the Conn Smythe trophy to my friend Duncan Keith. The Conn Smythe is awarded to the most valuable player during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I first heard of this tremendous defensemen back in the 2009-10 season where he helped prevail the Chicago Blackhawks to their first Stanley Cup victory since 1961. It seems like Duncan never has a bad season and makes very few mistakes on the ice. The amount of time he puts into this game really shows his dedication and love for hockey.
Sam Morris, the “surfer-boy” star of the Renegades, has hockey running through his veins. He lives and breathes the game. The only thing he’s crazier about is his family. Trina’s love saved him from himself after a season of losing and injuries. She was his life, his partner in crime, and his biggest fan.
Last year he spent significant time with the team and had some solid games which earned him playing time in the Playoffs. Marchenko is a defenseman who can move the puck pretty well, strong defensively, and a pretty good skater. He also comes with size that Detroit needs at that position (6’3 210 lb) but with the signing of Mike Green, there’s no real room for him to come up right away. That doesn’t stop him from being one of the top prospects to watch. Alexey has too many tools to be held down in Grand Rapids for long.
Most people who watch Ice Hockey live in North America, Europe, and North Western Asia. The greatest experience for a hockey fan is cheering for their respected countries. Every country who has an Ice hockey team has die hard ice hockey fans who live for Ice hockey. The countries with the most ice hockey supporters are Canada, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic, and the United States of America. Ice hockey can unite countries, and bring people together.
To this day, I am so grateful that I made that decision to try something new and work hard at it, because this year I actually ended up starting varsity for Villa Maria soccer. Although I am very passionate about soccer, I am also passionate about other things. In fifth grade I started snowboarding. After developing a burning passion for the sport, I decided to buy a snowboard. Buying a snowboard was one of the best decisions I could have made, because it has really been an assistance in my life.
