This season I have had my share of struggles on and off the ice. Playing hockey has been the one thing that I have enjoyed the most. With me turning 37 on June 6th, I now wonder how much time I have to play. If you ask a couple teams, I am still good enough to play. If you ask others, you will probably hear I should have stopped playing a while ago.
Maly’s is doing quite well so far. After placing 5th in the division last season, this season is shaping up to be a much better one. The bad thing is that we haven’t played a few of the top teams in the division yet. That will tell us where we really belong in the pecking order. Having the lowest goals against is a tribute to not only my team, but how confident I am playing.
Marketlab also continues to do well. After a tough loss last week, we look to get our swagger back and win this week. It will not be easy as we play against the Puckups, a team that has a lower goals against than me. Will be an interesting game. I am also playing for Dekleine Builders and their 2-3-1 record is disappointing to me because I should be playing better. The 32 goals allowed is tied for 4th but their goals for is next to last. Have to score to win games thats for sure.
Lastly, I have struggled playing for the Kodiaks this season. After plunking down two wins, I have struggled in a tough division to keep us competitive. I thought last night was going to be a little different, but every team is tough and there are some good players out there. I really need to focus and play better thats for sure. In the end though, I need to make a move to play more beginner/intermediate hockey. Moving up the ladder of difficulty doesn’t help my cause thats for sure.
