Jacob Broeske loves the Pittsburgh Penguins, but he wasn't able to watch them win the Stanley Cup last weekend. For good reason, of course.
"Because I had hockey camp the next day," said Broeske.
There isn't a whole lot of time to sit around at the Antigo hockey camp.
"You get more exercise in the summer because there's not much to do but sit around," said Broeske.
It's all about sharpening their skills.
"Skating techniques and puck handling," said Broeske.
They're learning those techniques from Antigo alumnus Joe Piskula. He's played for four different NHL teams.
"L.A., Calgary, Nashville and then Anaheim," said Piskula.
He now plays in Sweden but comes back every off season to give back to the community that once gave so much to him.
"There are so many people here still that were such a big part in me growing as a hockey player," said Piskula.
And now he gets to be a big part of teaching new hockey players like Jacob. And apparently their appetite.
"We get to play games. I also get to eat lunch here, and the lunch is very good," said Broeske.
The camp helps fund the Antigo hockey team.
