This past weekend were the state championship games for all level of hockey in Colorado. My son is 9, and is in his first year as a Squirt hockey player, and his first full year as a goalie.
He came into the championship game in relief, with the team down 4-1. I’d like to say they won, but ultimately lost 7-3, with the final goal coming as the game ended and kids were already looking at themselves on the Jumbotron. Still, seeing my son out there on NHL ice, playing his heart out, and his team finishing 2nd overall in the state is pretty cool.
