Hey former 'D' Leaguer here, pondering getting back into the rink. I haven't skated all that much for about 4 years and was never really good to begin with, but I miss the friendship and fun a midnight beer league can bring. As well as some much needed exercise! I moved to a new town this summer and drove by to check out the rink on a whim. Now I am getting more into it, and maybe will even check out the "stick-and-puck" session tomorrow. I am a little apprehensive though. Even for my size (6'2" 230lbs.) I get intimidated out there, and know there will be better skaters and I know it'll probably be really busy. I just want a chance to skate around with the equipment on, maybe see if my hard shot is still there, and just kind of get a feel for the ice again. I know I won't really be bothered by anyone, but I guess I need to hear from some of you out in Hockey Nation if there are similar stories or any advise about getting back into it! Thanking you in advance, TheKid.
