It’s time for the long hockey drought that is the summertime. All the cups have been won and now we wait for the boys of winter to return to the ice in October. To get us through the next few months, I thought it would be fun to look back on the memorable moments the 2016-17 season brought for the Hershey Bears in a series I’m entitling “Scenes from the Season.”
As a photographer, it’s all about capturing moments, and when you are taking pictures at a hockey game, there is a lot to capture! Let’s take a look back at some of my favorite moments from the season and be sure to check back next month for the next part in the series.
