(Almost) a decade of women's hockey photos

For no reason besides procrastination, I decided to go back through my archives to when I first started photographing women's hockey to find some of my favorite photos. The first is on Oct. 31, 2012. It must have been literally the first game I had photographed because I transferred to Boston University that semester.

Who knew I'd end up following the three players in the photo (Haley Skarupa, Marie-Philip Poulin, and Alex Carpenter) for the next seven years as they - and I - graduated college and moved on to the pro leagues and international tournaments.
