This is probably the one I like the best. It was shot on the catwalk at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium during the MasterCard Memorial Cup last May. Belleville Bulls' coach George Burnett was laying out a plan during a timeout and they went out and scored on the play. I love overheads when they give you a different look on something that you see all the time during games.

This was ScotiaBank Place just before the gold medal game at the World Junior Championships in Ottawa. The fans were passing around a huge Canadian flag in the lower bowl and the Canadian players had skated out for warm-up. The atmosphere was electric. I asked one of the ushers when was the last time he saw the building like that. He laughed and said "never - not even for the Stanley Cup playoffs."
It was very cool - especially after they won.
