How far can I go in ice hockey

Postby evitah on Wed Dec 15, 2010 3:49 am

How far can I go in ice hockey if I start at the age of 22? I've been playing roller hockey since 1999, never played on ice and ice skated maybe 2-3 times in my life. I do play in organized rec roller hockey leagues that are a mix of ice hockey players and casual players.

I suppose it would depend on talent and where you could play to showcase that talent

How far do you want to go?
What are you willing to do to get there?
How much time you have to dedicate to your goal?
How much money do you have to dediciate?
How tall are you?
How much do you weigh?
How do you compare to other players skill wise?
What position do you play?

Which isn't altogether a bad thing. I didn't start until age 35, but now - 10 years later - while through lack of a)talent, b)hard work, and c)proper coaching I'll likely never be
considered 'good', I've at least developed to the point where I can get on the ice with people who have played at fairly high levels (including at least 2 over 35 ex-NHLers!)
and not embarrass myself. Much. The 20somethings on the highest level team I play on say I keep improving, too. Do I wish all this had happened sooner? Sure, but better
late than never (I tease my dad for killing my hockey career by moving from North Dakota to Florida when I was 2).

I *definitely* appreciate the game itself more having played it. I see all kinds of things now that I never used to notice.
