Playing in the CCHA Media Day Game is a privledge for everyone involved. It curtails you puting on your goalie stuff for an hour and playing against people you work with. All of us media people work together to bring college hockey coverage to the masses. This is just one bonus the job brings. The location is Joe Louis Arena, home of the Detroit Red Wings. After a short warmup and photo shoot, we played the game. I played one period and let in no goals. Stopped one breakaway too which was a bonus. The other goaltenders didn’t make out so well. My partner let in a goal in the dying minutes of the game. My team still won, but they had the best two goalies. The other team just couldn’t get much going.
Anyway, that was the highlight of my day.
