Hockey is Canada's favorite sport - actually Lacrosse is our official sport but you never hear anything about it. Hockey leads the way - in a country with so much winter it's only right that a winter sport is so popular.
Anyway, back to Max. Here he is in action.
|Look at the smile on that little face.|
You'll have to excuse the quality of the pictures. They were taken through the protective plexiglass surrounding the rink. The boys wear their own personal jerseys and numbers in practice. After this practice session they were given their official team jerseys and numbers. Max chose to be lucky number 13! I'm sure it'll be good luck for him. After all, his Papa wore lucky #13 when he played softball and his team made it to the regional finals.
Just as a sidenote, Max's first hockey practice fell on the day of record breaking heat for this date here in Edmonton. It was 32C - hot and sunny. A good day to spend at an ice rink.
