Clinic over, off to lunch
The gear is stored, but the smiles still are big for the prospects and the kids they worked with at the St. Thomas Ice Center. The 50 kids, ages 6-9, had as much fun as the prospects.

"The best part of today was just stepping on the ice with kids," said Dougie Hamilton.

"I was having lots of fun with the kids, added Gabriel Landeskog, who even did Superman dives with the kids. "I've been in their shoes."

Landeskog said that when he was 5 years old or so he was a one-night mascot for his hometown hockey team in Stockholm, skating around the ice with a flag. "I remember touching the goalie and not wanting to wash my hand."

Next stop is the Walker Art Center for lunch and one more media event.
