It’s Family Day up here in Canada, so I’ll keep my post short. I want you guys to take this day to spend time with the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and whoever it is that helps make your hockey happen.
This time of year it’s very easy to get caught up in the frantic routine of playoffs/playdowns, getting ready for spring tryouts, getting signed up for summer sports etc., but there will be plenty of days left to worry about that. Take a minute to thank the ones who’re spending their hard-earned money to allow you to play the game you love, waking up at 5am to get you to practices on time, driving to the middle-of-nowhere for your games, and buying your new set of pads every year because you just keep growing!
It’s hockey families that really keep the game going, so on Family Day, take a second to let them know you really appreciate what they do.
