This month on the Discovery Channel, they're running a series on the great migrations of the world. The journey's of the sperm whale, the endless flight of the sandhill crane, the multi-generational migration of the majestic monarch butterfly, and on and on.
This got me thinking about "migrations" I've made for hockey. I driven to Toronto on a Friday night to see Wendel Clark night that Saturday before walking up and heading back home on Sunday. I've spent a weekend in the city that fun forgot to see the World Junior Championships. I've gone deep into hostile territory and attended the 2009 NHL Draft in Montreal. As a kid, I once for some reason traveled to Kentucky for a hockey tournament.
What about you? What's the farthest "migration" you've made in the name of hockey?
