Thanx for the comments guys.
The 'bump' against the boards is pretty tame really - the closer to the boards you are when you take a shot - the less momentum you get before you finally hit something hard. Hockey has a reputation for being a rough sport, but there is a great deal more to it then that. The 'roughness' is actually quite a small part of the game, as anyone who has tried staying upright on a set of skates will atest.
From the third shot, Jaidyn really can't get enough of his skating atm. He's pretty much been taken on board by the guys as team mascot (dragged him along to his first game at the age of 6months - slept through the whole thing. hehehe) Tis fun watching him skating around with the guys after a game (win, lose, draw - he is always wanting to get out there with the guys & put smiles on peoples faces)
