30 Day Hockey Challenge; Day 5

Day 5: Picture of your all-time favorite forward(s)?


Jeff Skinner and Alex Semin are my favorite forwards. Besides the fact that Jeff Skinner’s the youngest hockey player in the NHL right now, he’s incredibly talented and I can’t wait to see him next season with the Carolina Hurricanes! Although the future for Alex Semin is uncertain with the Washington Capitals, I think he’s the most talented on the team. He may seem inconsistent and bad at fighting but he’s got a lot to play for and when the Capitals need him most, Alex is always there.

Day 3: Who is your favorite AHL team?

 Probably the Portland Pirates. You might be thinking: “Why, Kristin, would you like those stupid Port-face Pirates?” My response to that is simple: “Alex Semin was a Pirate.”

Day 2: Who is your favorite NHL team?


I’m absolutely in love with the Carolina Hurricanes and I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon. You might be asking: “Why do you like the Carolina Hurricanes, Kristin?” Pretty simple: they’re just the best team in the league. Yeah, yeah, yeah, they didn’t make it into the Playoffs this year but they’ve got the best hockey players, some of the most respectful fans (from what I’ve seen) and they seem to actually care about the fans. That’s obviously a biased statement but still– I’m a Hurricanes fan and I’ve been one since I was a little, little girl. I know I didn’t really actually watch hockey when I was very young but I did go to some games and I loved the atmosphere.
You might be thinking:“Kristin, we all know you love Jeff Skinner. Quit the crappy act.” My comment to that is very simple: I didn’t start re-watching hockey until half way through this season. So when my sister Kelsey said “Kristin, you’ll probably like Jeff Skinner”, my first thought was“that sounds like an old man.”
And I digress.
I love the Carolina Hurricanes. Plain and simple. They’re the best team in the league and I love them ever so much.

Day 1: Why do you love hockey?

I love hockey because it’s fun, exciting and it makes me very happy. I also enjoy the incredibly good-looking guys. Oh chyeah, I’m admitting it. It takes a lot of skill to actually play hockey, you have to be creative while being a good skater, and it takes a lot of stamina to actually be able to skate all around for like an hour and a half on ice. It’s so underrated because people pay attention to only football and basketball. But another thing I absolutely love about hockey is the fact that almost everyone is so respectful. The players are so respectful towards each other, it’s amazing and even most of the fans respect each other. It’s a great thing to be apart of and the atmosphere of the games are electrifying and addictive.
