Oh - by the way - if you really want to step up the quality - besides a 70-200, you could strobe the rink. Here's a link to a thread by a great youth hockey shooter. I haven't seen him around dgrin in a while. But I know he strobes the home rink. And even when he doesn't - he certainly knows his stuff - you might want to send him a message over at dgrin. He can help you out far more than I can:

Those shots weren't strobed (but they were shot with the Nikon d700 which has outstanding noise performance). What strobing means is using external flashes or strobe lights (strobe lights are the big lights you'll see in studios - but they also exist in the rafters of pro rinks). If you search his posts over at dgrin you should find examples of strobed shots - he does it a lot for wrestling too.

Hey Hawksfan - Those are some nice shots. I keep saying I want to shoot hockey some day (I like the idea of being in a cool place), just haven't had the chance yet.
