The end of the season.
It comes by so fast and it sucks. I remember playing and sitting in my stall thinking the same thing as everyone else. “Why?”
In the dog days of winter you can lose sight of what’s really important. The rink can seem like a chore. But, then comes the end. You look around the locker room and realise the great experiences and memories that were made. The group of individuals that became a family.
You don’t want it to end.
It’s about this time when you remember what it is really about.
It’s always about the person sitting either side of you.
Because, hockey is family.
