Do You Realize What Month It Is?

It's freaking September! That's what month it is. September holds more than just the end of summer and the beginning of fall; it marks the beginning of the return of hockey!  In September we get rookie tournaments, training camp, roster finalization, and lastly the start of the pre-season.

August is the worst hockey related month by far; September freaking rules. Any of you who got some hate for September be mad bugging yo.
