Yes, I have done this my whole life. All those thousands of hours spent in the rink have led to this.

Yes, I have done this my whole life.

Yes, I give my everything at practice, every day. My body is taken to its limits. At times I feel like I can’t go on, but I keep going: one more line, one more kick, just this one more pushup. When the game day comes, I’ll be ready.

Yes, I want to win, more than anything. It fills my mind and wakes me up at night. I play the game again and again in my sleep. When I wake up, my mind is clear.

Butterflies fill my stomach as the rink door opens. The first kick on the ice makes my muscles tingle. I feel the sound of the audience in my entire body.

Yes, I am ready.
Yes, we are ready.

Yes, we are back.

Yes, I am ready.
Yes, we are ready.
I play the game again and again in my sleep.
When I wake up, my mind is clear.
