or at least, one hopes, incrementally better. looks like odin’s team mates have all progressed with their skating skills, but even more so than in previous years i think their success in the upcoming season will depend on their ability to play as a team.
odin’s waaaaaaay off in the background in the green jersey.
it’s the start of the new hockey season! and odin’s first “official” practice as a “pee wee” playing with 11 and 12 year olds. even though he’s 11, he’s a big kid so i have no doubt that he’ll hold his own with the 12 year olds.
here he’s launching a puck into the net after running a drill. it’s still amazing to see how naturally the kids improve from year to year. He makes it look effortless to put some heat on the puck and get it up in the air and under control. Soon enough he’ll be able to direct to exactly where he wants it to go.
