Quotes from Drew Doughty

 Here is a straight forward quote about playing hockey in this generation of the game.  Although hockey is a team sport it used to have big individual stars that relied on their own handling of the puck and scoring.  Here’s what Drew says about the game now,   “What you can expect to do is go to the net hard.  The goalies are so good these days if you’re not getting screens in front, if you're not getting rebounds or tips, goals aren't going to go in.”

Of course I like it when Doughty says something in a deadpan sort of way.  When asked about a particularity hard foul on another player Drew said,  "Generally, out West that's not a penalty."  Drew is sensitive about penalties s he is well known for spending back to back time in the penalty box.

Hockey Art Image of Jonathan Quick, goalie for the LA Kings painting is 48" x 60" acrylic and ink on unstretched canvas.  One of my favorite quotes from Jonathan Quick is  " You play 60 minutes and you try to stop the puck for your teamates, that's the thought process.  Everyone gives up the goal and it's part of the game"  That is something a lot of the fans fail to appreciate. As he has said that sometimes there is going to be a blog post or commentary calling him and idiot.  He has the hardest job on the ice- protecting the goal. And he is one of the best.  Sports Artist John Robertson

Art Hockey image – sports art painting.   NHL Vancouver Canucks hockey player painting I did a few years ago but just came across the photo – so I thought I would post it on the blog.  I have no idea who the player is.   The painting is approximately 3 ½ feet by 8 feet  acrylic on unstretched canvas.  The dripping and running of the paint really gives it a sense of motion – and the feeling of melting ice.
