EAHL D League – My First Foray Into Organized Hockey

I just finished up my first round of hockey classes. It was a 6 week class provided at the Edge Ice Arena. I realized when I finished the class that I could keep up with most of the others in my class. So If I can keep up with them, I could actually play an organized game of hockey, right? Well, there’s only one way to find out.

I’m now a member of the Free Agents team. The team is exactly as it sounds. It’s full of first time players or players who don’t have a team. Our first game is Sunday, May 2. I’m excited and nervous. I want to have fun playing, but I’m also pretty competitive.

I don’t know my teammates. I don’t know what position I’ll play (I’m hoping defenseman.) I don’t even know what color sweater I’ll be wearing! And last I heard, we still need a couple players.

So if you live on the southwest side of Denver or just enjoy traveling to my side of town, and you want to play hockey this summer, check out the Edge Adult Hockey League site and contact Jesse Badder at jesseb@fhprd.org

    • One of my favorite things about hockey is the amount of annoyance you get to dish out. Lifting the opponents stick with yours, last second poke checks, breaking up pretty scoring chances all sound like fun to me. Plus I like keeping things in front of me. I’d get to do all this playing D. We’ll see how it works out. Thanks for the comment!
