I have been giving the chance to shoot some junior hockey next month and I am looking for thoughts about what lens I should be looking to use besides the 70-200 F2.8? I have a 2nd body that I can take with me, but curious to thoughts about something else to shoot. I will have 2 games that I can shoot at and want to be sure I am getting the most of my time. Thanks in advance for the help!!

Shooting from where, with what (crop or full frame) and how good is the light at the rink? Below comments made with full frame in mind.

The 70-200 probably has the greatest versatility. Also consider:

If between the benches, a 24-70/2.8 is great to get the teams on the bench.

If in the corner, 300/2.8 is great for them coming down the ice toward you, as is wide angle when the action gets close.

A 300 or 400/2.8 is great for moving up into the bleachers for an elevated shot over the glass.

If it is your first time shooting hockey I would stick with the 70-200 2.8. It will cover most of the ice at one end.
