I really should post more photos here, I just never seem to get the chance. I'm not a hockey photographer, my specialty is car racing but I have done stuff here and there for some hockey publications.
I've been photographing my son's hockey career since he first stepped on the ice, you definitely learn a lot dealing with a big white sheet of ice and wildly fluctuating light sources, most of the rinks we play at you can't get away with no less than 3200 ISO.
I finally talked one of the coaches into letting me rig up a goal, my son has decided he wants to play goal so we signed him up for one of the house leagues just to play goal, he's been a backup for our travel team (Long Island Rebels) since our backup goalie decided he didn't want to play goal anymore.
Shots are done with a D700 and a Sigma 15mm fisheye... I have a hand held button for my PW's, I really need to break down and get a footswitch so I can batter handle the camera in my hands. The one shot from outside the goal was with my D3s & 70-200, I forget how much cleaner that camera is at high iso.
C&C welcome, I got the WB as close as I could, many of the lights were significantly different in color temp.
These are my 2 favorite shots (would have been easier with a foot switch) as they are the same photo from 2 different views.
