Hockey & NHL – DD23

breezersshoulderpadsIn episode 17 and episode 21 Dom talked a little bit about skating and playing hockey.  In this episode, Dom talks about his time playing hockey at different levels from four (4) years old to eighteen (18) years old.  He also talks about some of the different equipment he used while playing hockey, like breezers and shoulder pads and some of the teams he played on.

 

Dom also talks about watching the Minnesota North Stars, how he felt when they were moved to Dallas and became the Dallas Stars, following the New York Rangers and how excited he was when NHL hockey went back to Minnesota with the Minnesota Wild.

 

Although Dom no longer plays hockey, he is still a big fan, and loves watching the Minnesota Wild play hockey, which wasn’t easy in Bangkok, until he got the NHL package through NHL.com, and now he watches whenever he wants.
