The Danbury Hat Tricks offer oppurtunities for youth hockey teams to skate and play a "game"during 1st period intermission at home games. I was able to reserve 12/18 for us. Its a Saturday. The game starts at 7pm. Coaches and players will receive complimentary tickets. Parents will receive a discounted code to buy as many tickets as you would like. Looking at our schedule this seemed like the best day for us that they still had available. More details to follow but please let me know if you think you would be able to make it or if you know for sure you can not. I wont need final confirmation until we get closer to the date. Ill be around this weekend for the games or you can send me an email.

Getting to the Net
One point I've really tried to drive home for the kids is the need to get to the net. In order to help reinforce this, I took a look at all the goals scored in the NHL on Saturday and plotted them out on the attached slide. The pattern is pretty clear - even for NHL players with unbelievably strong and accurate shots, the overwhelming majority of goals are scored from the crease and slot areas. If they can get there, so can we.
