If you've ever wanted to know what really separates pro athletes from the rest of us mortals...it's that. The guy is a full foot or two off of the ground, flying across it, chased by a successful NHL refugee, and he STILL has control of the puck.

I love my job, and I'm very fond of the athletes I work with. All images are ęcopyright 1pen and my sports media company.You may NOT use, replicate, manipulate, or modify this image without my permission. All Rights Reserved.

hmmm I want to call that a dive, but... being in control of the puck like that... it seems more like a trip (besides that he's not Sidney Crosby lol)

Is this the ECHL? And who is the NHL refugee who is chasing him?

Yes, it is ECHL. That is Brad Mills, a New Jersey Devil last NHL season. As a free agent during the lockout he spent 27 games with my local team. He is currently signed with the AHL IceHogs for the rest of their season.

Cool, I wish I had a good camera... I could take some action shots during AHL games I go to. The Admirals are my team :)

Perfect shot you did! Look in his face - although in motion you can see the detailed face during "the flight". Awesome!

Thanks so much, Stefan, I appreciate the feedback!:heart:

Sometimes it's difficult to keep the details of their faces intact because of the visors in front of their eyes. When they change directions abruptly, the camera may keep the visor and helmet in focus and blur the face behind it as if it's also part of the background. It can get tricky. ;)
