Daniel Dockree, 15, was out in front of his Aberdeen apartment building when I happened by.
He was twisting and spinning his hockey stick with a puck held in place against the blade and shaft by centrifugal force. He was flipping the puck into the air off the stick and then twirling the stick like a baton before trying to catch the puck on the shaft or blade.
I asked if he was trying to work the actions into his hockey game. “No I just like to do tricks.”
He plays house league hockey at Coronation Arena.
