big day today guys very very big day now as you’ve probably already seen from the title today I’m going to be playing ice hockey for the very first time in my entire life in fact this will probably only be the second time I’ve ever been ice skating let alone playing ice hockey in my life and I don’t even remember when the first time would have been it was that long ago that today’s video is made in collaboration with Cannon and today we’re going to be using the Canon EOS R and the EOS m 50 to document this momentous occasion now today I’m probably not going to be doing much of the filming because I think I’m gonna be pretty busy having pucks shot at my face so today my friend Tim who is also a vlogger will be helping me out filming but the thing is he’s never used these cameras before so this would be an interesting test to see how easy these are to use but anyway I have booked the Hartwell Arena practice ice rink I’ve got a coach coming down who’s gonna help me out Tim’s ready to go so I think we just hop in the car head over the Hartwell and get this party started that’s good [Applause] [Music] [Applause] like what do I even start with this okay for safety okay more grippy than I thought [Music] [Applause] all right guys we’ve made it onto the ice now my coach coach Tony who’s also my cousin-in-law has been kind enough to come down and teach me some some hockey like thanks so we’re gonna start off as you can see with some goalie moves so far so good I’m upright I haven’t fallen over yet feel like Bambi [Applause] they’re when they’re in your stance okay so this is my coaching so far standing the goal and take some shots are you doing it looks a lot easier than it is I’m like so we’ve done the easy stuff now we’re gonna learn the butterfly over here you’re cutting down the angle okay how does have a heel looks pretty good it feels horrible but um you’re eating their back up upper body like this yeah I feel like a minute splits [Applause] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Applause] I’d love some more that’s right I have so much respect for anyone that plays hockey right now so hard there for like 25 minutes 9 goalie session is over now we’re gonna go out onto the ice and see if I can get the puck swap jerseys we’re gonna try something some shooting and it’s an escaping stuff now I think because I’ve been really haven’t really skated I just kind of stood there so now I’m going to try to move around [Music] [Applause] just shoot the coaches [Applause] okay I’m gonna put this ring every week now until I’m so is the day after and I have a broken man this morning seriously I said it before but now I have so much respect for anyone that plays ice hockey it and I wasn’t even playing a game I was just literally skating around and I’m broken that’s it I’m broken like those goalie pads are so heavy well you saw it looks so much easier than it is and he doesn’t even look that easy so that’s how hard that was for me anyway I had an absolute blast in fact I came home last night and I started looking up where to buy my own ice skates because I definitely want to practice because it’s winter now lakes will start to freeze over so I think definitely at least some ice skating practice maybe I’ll get a stick and a few pucks and practice I don’t know leave a like on this video if you want to see some more ice hockey videos maybe I’ll do like a road it’s a ice hockey pro series because I mean you know as you can see I I had potential by one you guys to let me know how you thought I did in the comments below please be kind now I’ve already had a quick look at the footage and I think that this story has been perfectly captured on the EOS R and the EOS m 50 by Tim who did a fantastic job even though you’ve never used these cameras before and I think being able to turn your camera on and just use it is very very big part in being able to tell your story and that must be why canons motto is live for the story because that is very very important so if you want to know a little bit more about these two cameras I will leave links in the description go there check them out but that is about it guys I think I’m gonna go lay in bed for a few days and see if my muscles will will kind of go back to normal thank you so much for watching and thank you cannon for sponsoring this video leave a like on this video if you have enjoyed it or if you just want to see some more ice hockey videos in the future I’m probably gonna do them anyway because this was an absolute blast but once again guys thank you so so much for watching I’ll see you next time see ya

    Very impressed on your goalie skill. I mean that looked better than some WC goalteanding at times and literally first time 😀 Get skates and a stick, but couple of tennis balls. That way you can play on the lakes then without killing anyone. Puck only for real metal nets you'll likely find on some outside rink and if no-one around. Pucks you'll lose to nearest snow bank, tennis balls are a bit easier to find, but get ready to lose some too 🙂 Anyways, when I was young we had a outside rink literally 200m away and lost many balls there, but during spring we always went on a hunt there once snow was low enough and I never had to buy any, there was always many to be found.

    You should maybe try some flooball stuff, it has stick handling and it's really fast sport. Skating is different for sure, but hey, at least goaltenders still get sweaty just putting on the gear.

  • Reply Nita December 7, 2018 at 5:13 pm

    You aren't gonna go skating on lake ice, right? That can be really dangerous. There is this hobby, retkiluistelu, that does take place on lakes and stuff but for that you must have different kind of skates and naskals (thing you use to get out of the water if the ice breaks). So don't go on random lakes to skate without the proper equipment and training, ok? Just worried about you D:

    As a goalie I was really worried about how it would go with you catching pucks, but you did good considering your experience with skating. Although I was cringing a lot due to your positions at times. Still, great job!

  • Reply Syntse December 7, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    Nice you tried. Tho you bit late on the game. Finns usually start learning hockey already in comprehensive school and back then I was already better than you and I wasn't that good compared to some other class mates. But generally you live in Finland ice skating is a skill that you must have.

    If you're going to skate on a lake, make sure the ice has been measured and is at least 1 meter thick. It's better just to skate on official maintained skating rinks.

    Actaully that V was quite alright as a goalie. Most first timers tend to jump on their knees, feet directly straight backwards,. pads down, under the knee (like the face of the pad on the ice). So not as bad as it could been. Next step: moving around in goalie gear and getting quickly up from butterfly. It's actually so much fun, playing ice hockey, especially as a goalie.

    We appreciate it. Your playing the greatest game on Earth. To answer your question why your muscles are hurting so bad you're using muscles that you never used before. Once you start skating and learning how to ride your edges you are going to be a really good hockey player start doing skating drills. Learn about your crossovers backwards skate. And learn your balance. Also learn how to use your stopping on the ice. Never give up on the sport it gives a lot of good values on life and it is also. A great place to make friends, and the best part is when you're having a rough day what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room. Like for example wife was heckling me in the morning to take the trash out and I got angry because I had to go to hockey practice. So I told her I'd take care of it in the tomorrow morning😂😂. But you will enjoy it and love the game way to go on your skating.
