Season 7 for the Texas Stars has come to an end. The team was eliminated from the Calder Cup playoffs in the first round last Friday night by the San Diego Gulls. Hockey demands a tremendous amount of skill, stamina, pain, and sacrifice to claim its highest trophies. Making it to the playoffs says a lot of the team. While it would have been great to see the team go further I can say that I'm proud of these guys and honored to have been along for the trip as one of their photographers. It's a daunting effort to distill thousands of photos to a few highlights. My archive from season 7 contains nearly 10,000 images! It wasn't easy to make the picks but looking through them all brought back a lot of exciting memories. Click the link below to see my favorite shots from season 7.
