Special Treat – An AHL/ECHL Song



Got a special treat for Bourne’s Blog readers today - this song is about the life of an AHL/ECHL player… My buddy sent it to me today, and I think you’ll enjoy it.

    Haha – leave your sticks here, they’ll be better used by someone with good hands or a hard shot, but don’t lose your confidence.
