I absolutely love roster photo day. Who shines? Who smiles with their eyes? Who suffers from that dreaded disease Roster Photo Panic, more commonly known as RPP?
Unfortunately, most of these boys seem to be better prepared for these photos. No one looks like they slept in the car last night, there's the standard "cut by a weed whacker" hockey hair, vacant stares and odd lighting. However, let's check out some high (and low) lights:
Oh Sir Christopher
You could use a trim, but I'll forgive you
Aww Pie's all growed up.
He got himself hitched this summer.
Awwww, Little Foot always mixes up his photos.
This is tiny because there's no watermark
Felix has a remarkably thick neck
And a remarkably vacant facial expression
Jacob Lagace looks like he took a puck to the head, someone pulled a jersey on him and pushed him in the direction of the stool and he almost missed.
The photographer told all the Kings to put their hands on their lap and lean slightly forward
Greener did too
All the Oilers roster photos look like they were taken in a bathroom
Aww, Matt Duchene's first NHL roster photo
I could not come across rosters for many other teams, so many of my other WCBs don't have roster photos up yet or they're not hilarious or adorable.
Wooooo. Hockey is almost here! Fo' Reals. The Canucks beat the Islanders 2-1 in the Hockeyville game last night. Hooray!
