Hog Shack slideshow

Is there anything more breathtaking - at any level of hockey - than a player who goes mano-a-mano* with the goaltender? Photo by Jason Kurylo for Pucked in the Head* Or womano-a-womano! We're definitely not trying to pull a rangers.com on you ladies!

Those of you who follow Pucked in the Head know that we believe hockey is beautiful, and that the beauty is not limited to the NHL level. We love AHL, CHL, BCIHL, CIS, NAIA, NCAA, pee wee, midget, bantam, atom, and every other level you can think of.

Yes, we even love rec league! So in a blatant attempt to out-Hog Shack the Canucks Hockey Blog, we didn’t just go to the Hog Shack Restaurant, invite the owner to appear on the podcast and shove our BBQ-holes full of pulled pork and delicious burnt ends.┬áNo, no, that would be easy. WE WENT TO A HOG SHACK HOCKEY GAME.

Check out the slideshow after the jump, and while you’re at it, think about supporting our Ride to Conquer Cancer campaign – if you donate before noon on January 29, you could win tickets to see the Canucks at Rogers Arena!
