Breaking the ice

Every autograph hounding season has to start somewhere, so mine began earlier today at the Ice Sports Forum in Brandon, where two of Tampa Bay's newest faces -- veterans Olaf Kolzig (top row) and Mark Recchi (bottom row) -- put themselves through the paces.

Sure, it's still a couple weeks before training camp opens, but it's nice to see these two guys getting a head start on conditioning for the long season ahead.

Both were very pleasant and willing to sign multiples, as I was the only hound waiting for them. Both, too, commented on specific pucks. Kolzig got a kick out of the Rochester Americans. And, of course, Recchi recognized the Kamloops Blazers puck.
