Airborne Over Ice

Continuing my quest to capture peak sports action, I caught a series of photos last night as the West Genesee Wildcats took on the Baldwinsville Bees in high school boys ice hockey.

West Genesee Wildcats defensemen goes airborne clearing the puck against the Baldwinsville Bees at the Greater Baldwinsville Ice Arena in Baldwinsville, New York on Tuesday, January 31, 2012.  West Genesee won 3-0.

A teammate’s stick had tripped the West Genesee Wildcats player causing him to go airborne.  He still had the presence of mind to continue to shoot the puck out of his team’s zone.  While this is something you see all the time in Olympic figure skating competition, hockey players like to keep their skates on the ice.
