Scraping the ice and shovelling the snow from outdoor ice surfaces is a workout before the games begin. Hands up if you have felt your low back twinge bent over a shovel or a hockey stick. All those hours at hockey practice have Mom and Dad challenged to keep up with the kids. They’re faster on the ice than it looks from the stands. Hand the shovels over to them.
