Hockey's a great game


I spent over 20 years of my life managing two ice arenas. I have watched more hockey than most people and this is what I learned. Yes, hockey can be dangerous.

When you take a frozen piece of rubber and shoot it a hundred miles an hour there will be bruises and busted teeth.
