POD: Last game of the Season

Today Violet played her last ball hockey game of the EMBHL season. Sure she might play on a team at provincials, but this is the end of the red team season. They had a chance of winning it all but came up just short. Losing 4-3. today’s picture of the day is Violet and Lucas discussing what play they were going to try their next shift. Between them, they scored all the Red team’s goals, Lucas with 2 and Violet with one. They came close to tying it up in the final minutes but just couldn’t do it. Still, it was a good season for Violet, who missed a few games with her broken arm.

POD: A special moment at HockeyFest

Today was Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest, an event Violet had been looking forward to for weeks. A chance to skate with her hero Natalie Spooner. When she broke her arm last week we were so worried that she’d miss it. I’m so glad that it turned out to be such a memorable day for my little Hockey Diva.

POD: Jersey Preview

Between the issues with my blog and family commitments, I’m having trouble keeping up with my renewed focus on blogging. But more is to come, for now here is a sneak peek at what Violet’s Jersey will look like next hockey season.

Today I thought I’d share the amazing end of season gift Violet got from her DS team this season.

POD: Furies Game

Today we headed to the CWHL Game to watch the Toronto Furies take on the Brampton Thunder. Violet’s favourite player, Natalie Spooner plays (Number 24) for the Furies and scored a hattrick. It wasn’t enough for the furries to defeat the Thunder, which was ok for Violet and her teammates because three of the Brampton players coach the girl’s hockey teams, and they came to play. It was a great game, ending 4-3 with Brampton scoring the winner in the final minute of the game.

POD: Hockey Drills

Tonight I thought I’d share something a little different. An animated GIF from Violet’s DS practice. When I watch this I can’t help be amazed at how much better she gets every time she steps on to the ice.

POD: Using all of the Icetime

Today we have a picture from Violet’s hockey practice. I captured this while they were skating off the ice, as the Zamboni waited to hit the ice.

POD: First House League game of 2017

After a two week break from house league hockey Violets team hit the ice for their first game of 2017. It was a hard fought game with the Silver Stars falling 4-2. What impressed me was how hard Violet played. Going in to the corners for the puck and not giving up when she went for the net. She was rewarded for her effort with a beautiful goal on a rebound.

POD: Watching Hockey

Tonight we have a picture of Violet as she watches the Gold Medal game of this year’s world Juniors. It was a great game, with an unfortunate ending (Canada lost in a shootout). Violet didn’t want to go to bed till it was over.
