I’m pleased to announce I’ve been drafted to a new team this year: The Puxi Checkers. It’s a brand new team this season, probably because our league is growing. I heard upwards of 120 skaters! Take a look at the logo! It’s quite a clever play on words actually, like Chinese checkers, only hockey players are also checkers, cuz they check other people n stuff, er something like that. Anyway, this should be a fun season, as I’m also going to be playing with the Shanghai Red Guard travel squad in a tournament in Shenyang, China (northeastern China). We will face off against teams from all corners of China, and even a team from Mongolia! It should be interesting, as I know there are a lot more Chinese players in the north whereas our team is mostly, or all expats. We square off in two weeks! Keep posted for details.
