Hershey Bears Practice Before Mid-Week Matchup (Photos)

HERSHEY, PA — After a day off on Monday, the Hershey Bears returned to the ice for practice before their Wednesday matchup against the Springfield Thunderbirds. It was drills as usual for the Bears, but most importantly, it was pink helmet shootout day!

This is my best friend Zach Sill.

Like a Pheonix.
