My kid is a goon. There I said it.
So, I have this 17 year old that didn’t start skating until he was 12. Most kids that age have been skating for 5 or more years. When he started playing on the local club team outside of St. Louis, he was slow and uneasy on the ice and couldn’t really puck handle. On a turnover, by the time he skated down to the other blue line, the play was either already on its way back or the other team had scored.
