Just as an example, these are the two that we would have submitted.


The Rent-a-Goalie is the unsung hero of hockey

Rent-A-Goalies come in many forms: some of them cost money, some of them are just a buddy that you call in a pinch, but the most important characteristic of a rent-a-goalie is that they show up between the pipes.



Luca is the team rep that never gets the credit he deserves for organizing basically everything to do with the hockey team and Vince is the goalie that always shows up when you need him the most. We’re pretty sure you’re probably familiar with some characters like this in your own life.


Three reasons why the team rep is the unsung hero of hockey

The team rep, especially on rec-league teams, gets very little credit for all the work they put in to make sure that everyone has fun. First and foremost there’s the actual initiative to sign people up for the team, then there’s giving people rides, filling water bottles, placing deposits and basically bringing everything you need to have a good time.
