Day 5: Pheonix Copley Blog
By Pheonix Copley
Yesterday afternoon we had the first game. It ended up as a tie but it was good experience overall. I think everyone was kind of just getting into the flow of the game. It was a fun experience. Everyone was playing hard, which is always good to see. Last night after the game we just had our regular down time, and we went out to grab a bite to eat. You can probably guess where (Chipotle). Afterwards we just headed back to the hotel to get some rest.
Today we woke up and came to the rink right away. The goalies had a video session with the goalie coaches to go over the footage of yesterday’s game, which was really helpful. We went over our play and some ways to improve for today’s game. That’s pretty much all we did before we warmed up and got on the ice this morning. Unfortunately, the game today was not very good for the white team. We didn’t play very well. So we’ll be coming out hard in tomorrow’s scrimmage, that’s for sure. It never feels good to lose like that. We’re excited for tomorrow too because there should be a good crowd. It’s our last game so we want to go out with a win.
After the game and the conclusion of camp I’ll be heading home to Alaska right away and getting back to training. I want to keep improving in the offseason and this camp has definitely helped me move in that direction.
