JET BLAST: 'How I spent my summer vacation'

Part One: Memorable moments close to home

by Cameron Penney @CGRP19 / WinnipegJets.com

It's the age-old question everyone is confronted with as the summer months come to an end, and we are reunited with friends at the rink: How did you spend your summer vacation?

While the break was brief for our #NHLJets, it was time well spent as they recharged and refocused ahead of the 2021-22 season.

Adam Lowry doesn't have to go far from his off-season home to mix in scenic views as part of workout. 

Lowry and his family hiked along Big Beehive Trail, a 10.4-kilometre trek that starts at Lake Louise and offers gorgeous views through the forest and along the lakeshore.

In his home province of British Columbia, Jansen Harkins visited Galiano Island alongside his four-legged companion Fawkes cooling off from the summer heat.

Dylan DeMelo spent some time in his hometown of London, Ontario, with fellow high-profile athletes from the forest city, and celebrating the achievements of Damian Warner.

Warner won Olympic Gold this summer for Canada, setting an Olympic record in the decathlon.

Mark Scheifele was reunited with #NHLJets alum Brandon Tanev on the golf course, competing against media personalities James Duthie and Shawn McKenzie in Toronto.

While they didn't earn bragging rights with a victory on the course, it was all for a great cause as $10,000 in funds went towards charitable initiatives here in Manitoba.

Tweet from @markscheifele55: Great day at the Face-Off with Taney. Even better being able to donate $10,000 to the Frontline Fund, specifically in support of the Children���s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba and the Manitoba Health Sciences Foundation. Thank you to our brave health care professionals! pic.twitter.com/YmUm3aRjXY
