Photos from my mother’s first ever hockey practice.

For her first trick, Ma tries a warm-up skate across the ice.

 

She checks the ice: Yep, solid.

 

She checks the boards: Also solid.

 

Coach Mike and I (in the white helmet) give her some encouragement.

 

Captain Beerslinger gives pointers during some skating drills.

 

I check in on her before joining my teammates.

 

Coach Mike and Mrs. Harrible watch me try to corral a bouncy puck.

 

Cones, of course, are a big part of any practice.

 

During a shooting drill, I treat the goalie to a little head-hunting.

 

Captain Beerslinger and I take a breather.

 

 

Ma and Captain Beerslinger practice their puckhandling.

 

In between drills, there’s time for a little mother/daughter game of catch.

 

Cheers, Ma, you made me proud. Next practice: dropping the gloves.
