With the Corona shutting down almost everything around us in some way or another, it’s worth noting that time itself doesn’t stand still, and while games may not be playing things like our age and birthdays continue to occur. For many, the dream of playing junior, college, or professional hockey has been a goal their entire lives with this coming June being the penultimate time of their lives. This season was going to be their time to shine to grow into and demonstrate their abilities for coaches, scouts, managers, and more to pick them in order to further that goal. That is all up in the air right now as the pandemic continues to wreak havoc on our lives.
