Jonathan's Hockey Game

Jonathan is in his third year of hockey, and he's come a long way from the little guy who wanted to sit at centre ice. Mostly his team just practices, but they had a game on Saturday. It was the first time in about a year that Sue and I got out to see him.

Before the game he posed for this photo. ↓

He got to take a few faceoffs although he pretty much stayed on defence afterward.

Someone else was taking this faceoff, but he was poised. (#69 with red socks)

Oops ... didn't see you there.

Most of the game was played in his team's zone. He heads toward the corner to retrieve the puck in the next two photos.

They were able to break out of their own zone a few times. Here they go on one of their forays. JJ is second from the left.

His team didn't do all that well, so it's just as well they didn't keep score. His friend, Ethan scored the team's only goal. There he goes: #66. Excellent skater.

Handshakes all around at the end. JJ is to the right of centre, with Ethan two in front of him (also red socks).

Team spirit is more important than keeping score at JJ's age. Looks like he's pretty comfortable on skates!

I'm amazed at playing a sport on skates. It looks so rough, but so does our football. My grandson is playing a "tag football" now, but next year he goes to tackle. Ugh

Great lessons learned in that sport. Great effort! How wonderful that you can see the games. The joys of being a grandparent..

Bravo...he's looking good on the ice.
Merry Christmas to you both.

Those socks are very Norwegian! Good to see :)

And my doesn't he look quick and confident on his skates. I remember the photos of his first try and he really has come a long way. Hats off!
