Headed up to Calgary this weekend to cover the Hurricanes' visit to the annual Hitmen Teddy Bear Toss game.
This was an interesting trip as this was my first time shooting the Saddledome as well as my first time testing out my newly acquired Nikon D5.
With my milk crate to sit on against the boards in section 111, by the hash marks of the Hurricane's defending end, I had a great vantage point for Skinner's highlight reel performance stopping 12 of 13 shots, most of them quality scoring chances.
During the warmup skate I also got a taste of the perils of sports photography, as one of the players got the blade of their stick caught in the camera hole while I was checking levels and pegged me pretty good in the side of the head. Anyway, you're not here for my rambling you're here for the photos! Enjoy!
