Sam in Sochi: August 24th

Tauros’ defenseman Sam Skinner is representing the Tauros, NAHL, and USA Hockey as a member of Team NAHL in the Sirius Junior World Cup in Russia. After some connectivity issues saw Skinner’s messages lost in cyberspace we’ve caught up with him and now hope to be back on track for him to send us a quick update each day to let us know what how he and the team are doing.

We woke today and had a light practice to prep for our first big game here in Sochi. It was a tough day for team NAHL with a 1 to 5 loss. I was a healthy scratch for today’s game and am hoping to play the next game for a big win!
