I love pre-game knaps
So I’ve been in Canada on my contract for just over 3 weeks, in fact 3 weeks ago today training camp started, since then we’ve won 2 and lost 1, that was last night!
we should of won but things didn’t go our way, and 6-3 up after 2 we threw it away, but we’re all young and we’ll bounce back harder, we are a good group of guys here.
personally, I love it here. absolutely fricking love it, I spend 6/7 hours a day training, off and on ice and its only the beginning, i’m already 10 times better than 3 weeks ago. and everybody is so amazing here, adults, teammates, staff, coaches and even the odd girl,
gosh its hard work, but boy is this the life I dreamed of
so today is the day, after years of wishing, a year of planning and preparation to get here, and 2 weeks of work in training camp- tonight is the night! our home opener faces of 7:30pm ET against Toronto Blue Ice Jets.
still hasn’t set in that i’m actually in Canada about to make my Junior.A debut, so many people doubted me to get this far but here I am, doing what I love! not sure whether i’m ready for matches at this level, but we’ll see! this is just the beginning though!
Lets go whalers!
