Hi, not posted in a while. The seasons well underway now here in the UK. These were taken at the local derby Nottingham Panthers V Sheffield Steelers in front of a sell out 6500 crowd.

1)

3 seconds on the clock and Ryan Finnerty and Panthers Bruce Richardson get to work

2)


Pure emotion David Clarke celebrates Panthers opening goal

3)


Panthers Davis Parley turns this one aside

4)


Steelers Doug shepperd on the back check

5)

Thanks for looking enjoy the pics, your constructive critiques are always welcome.

Thats where Dan Tessier plays now. He used to be pretty creative with the puck. Unfortunately he was a little too small for for the NHL when he came out of Junior

The shots are great. The lighting is excellent. Thanks for posting these

Ryan Finnerty played a season here for our local ECHL team (AA team for the Canucks). Now I know where he went. Nice to see hockey pics making their way to the boards again. Good shots!

Thanks for your comments

Dan Tessier is the class act in the Elite League this season, too small for the NHL, but his passing is unbelievable and here in the UK hes a real impact player. As for Ryan Finnerty theres a feisty little SOB haha

I love how terrified the steeler's player looks to be facing that beast in pic 1! Great facial expressions/emotion and awesome lighting. The puck capture in the pic with the goalie is awesome, the goalie is wishing he was about 6 inches taller! It also looks like the stick from (I'm guessing the shooter) is right near him. Must have been a hell of a move to fake him out of his pads like that.
