Whew! What a weekend for most hockey parents in Edmonton... in Canada for that matter... minor hockey playoffs continues.. I like to take these videos to track my own kids' progress in hockey and to save as mementos... but it makes it all worthwhile when that one kid comes up to me and says..."did you see that shot I blocked?" or "did you catch that goal I scored?" "can you put it on YouTube?"
