I saw this fun story in the Ottawa Sun.

A humbled Daniel Alfredsson brought his own shovel and five-year-old son Hugo to help to pay off a debt yesterday.

The Senators captain made good on his lost bet — that would be for Sweden’s 5-1 loss to Canada in the final of the world junior championship earlier this month — to teammate Shean Donovan by making the short trek to Donovan’s house in Carp and shovelling the winger’s small backyard rink.


Make sure you click the link for the full story and watch the video to see Donovan’s backyard rink.

I still need to get some photos and then I will write a post about our rink.  I used a different design this year that I really like and plan to make further improvements over the summer.

Here is our rink from last year.
