My first penalty

My first penalty is something that I will never forget because it happened in my first season when I was six years old. Normally if someone in Bunnies gets a penalty they would have to sit on the bench instead of going to the penalty box.

I remember being at a tournament and being sent on the ice too early or I was too slow at getting off the ice, so I got sent to the penalty box for there being too many people on the ice. I remember crying so much in the penalty box because I didn’t know what I did wrong and I didn’t really understand what was going on.

My mom was in the stands behind the penalty box trying to calm me down because I couldn’t stop crying.  To this day every time I get a penalty I remember getting that penalty when I was six years old.
