Back to School with the NHL

It’s that time of year again! Time to throw a giant backpack on a child, put them on a bus and send them to school for yet another year!

This is an exciting time, a nervous time and a time of hope and new beginnings. But it’s not just for children. It’s a very little known fact that today is the day that NHL players go back to school as well. And just like Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and Alex Burrows above, NHL players are happily running off to school with their backpacks and new shoes as we speak!

Why there’s Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews right now! Have a great day today boys!

Check out Evgeni Malkin in his spiffy new backpack and turtleneck!  With that look he’s bound to pick up some cooties from the girls this year!

What’s wrong Dion Phaneuf? Can’t remember what you wanted to draw? Don’t worry, it’ll come to you. Have a Red Bull.

You really didn’t think we were going to do this post without some Screaming Chara, did you?

But that’s not all! In yet another Houses of the Hockey exclusive (we somehow get a lot of bizarre exclusives) we have even more information on NHL players going back to school.

Most of the time, when kids return to school, one of the first assignments is to draw what you did during the summer. It’s no different for NHL players. Here are a few drawings of what NHL players did during the summer.

Enjoy the new school year!
