NHL All-Star Week Pics

Posted on by Patrick

Ok, so maybe it’s not the day after like I talked about before, but here are the pics I took during the YoungStars/NHL Skills competition here in Dallas. Our seats were pretty awesome. One of the cool things was that for every team that has a mascot, they were there. I got shots of several of them. The funniest thing was the Islander Mascot (pic below, still trying to figure out why their mascot is a dragon) and I “got into it”. He came and sat on a kid sitting in front of us, I was taking his picture and he came up to get in my face. I took the picture and as he’s turning around I yelled “Go Rangers!”. For those that don’t know, the Islanders and Rangers are a huge rivalry. He turned around and proceed to “eat my head”. It was all in good fun. It was a great night and I got to see a lot of NHL talent on display. A once in a lifetime thing.
