Dylan’s first hockey tournament

Dylan played in his very first hockey tournament this past weekend – the Ice Mite Jamboree in Crosby, MN (15 min from Brainerd).  He was pretty excited about it.  Probably not as excited as his dad tho, who was just brimming with pride.  Here he is just after he got onto the ice to warm up.  He was a little nervous because he didn’t recognize his friends in their usual jerseys.  So he was immediately looking around for us to make sure we were there.

And here he is during one of his 2 minute shifts of playtime.  The “games” were 30 minutes with 2 minute shifts for groups of 4-5 players.

His signature goal celebration move is to throw his stick up in the air.

He’s ready for action!

Here he is on the bench with his “friends.”  Ha ha!  Eric always says that all the kids on the team are constantly saying, “Hey Dylan!” or “See ya next week Dylan!”  and he looks at them with a blank face, like who are you?  He’s so popular and he doesn’t even know it! (For my Mom who can’t tell who her own grandson is in hockey gear – he’s the one with the green hood sticking out)

Scrambling for the puck!

Here he is after the game with his new medal.  He was pretty pleased to be getting such a fancy medal.  I was pleased to see the bag of swag.  We didn’t even have to pay to play in this tournament and we got swag!

And these pics are from the car (my cell phone camera).  He wanted to show off his medal some more.

Tournament recap – 5 goals and at least 2 assists over a span of 3 “games.”  Hat trick in the first game, 0 in the second game and 2 in the last game.  He did awesome!   First of many tournaments!  I told Eric I’m now searching for one of those super hot long down coats…oh yeah, I’m gonna be all the rage.  : )
