Czech Hockey Player

Russell's friend came to visit from the Czech Republic. His name is Marek Chvatel and he is a professional hockey player. He played on a farm team in Toronto for 2 years and then was drafted to the New Jersey Devils. He didn't make the second draft so he went home and plays for a professional team there. We took him up to the Logan Ice Arena to see him skate. It was amazing. Someone asked him when he started skating, he joked "I've been here about 20 minutes" Alison went skating for the first time. The BEST thing about the skating rink is that it was the coolest place to be on a hot day.

  2. Okay, I put the comment on the wrong story but I wish I had been there to go skating with the hockey player! I have hockey skates that just sit and wait for me to use them. Maybe next time I come to Logan I'll bring them and Alison and I can do some more skating!
