David Boreanaz - David Boreanaz Pens Personal Essay For The Nhl

Bones star David Boreanaz has opened up about his love for America's National Hockey League (Nhl) by penning a personal essay for next year's (12) Winter Class Game programme.
The actor portrays a hockey-obsessed Fbi agent on the hit U.S. crime show, but Boreanaz admits he's just as much of a fan in real life. He reveals his father passed on his love of the game to the actor, and now he's doing the same with his own son - Jaden, aged nine.
In an excerpt from the game booklet, obtained by Entertainment Weekly, he writes, "I was about seven years old when my family and I moved from Buffalo, New York to Philadelphia (Pennsylvania). Not too long after we arrived, my dad, as a surprise, got us tickets to see the Buffalo Sabres take on the (Philadelphia) Flyers... It was exciting. He had gotten tickets in the nose-bleed section and when the Sabres scored, I cheered really loud. My dad just looked at me and I could tell that it was probably not the wisest thing to do. Even as a child I remember being taken aback by the, well, non-exuberant crowd around me as I celebrated alone in the upper decks...
"I watched the inaugural Nhl Winter Classic with my dad and I remember thinking what an amazing thing it was for the city of Buffalo and for the Nhl. Hockey the way it should be played: outside. Seeing the passion of the players, goalies wearing hats to keep warm. It's cool...
"Oddly enough, I play now, out in Los Angeles were I live, more than I ever did before. I play club hockey with friends and some former Nhl players, and my 9 year-old son plays on a traveling team. Although I'd never pressure him - there's nothing worse than trying to force on your child the things you wanted to do as a kid - he loves it, and watching him develop with it has been incredible."
The 2012 Bridgestone Winter Classic Game between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers will take place in the U.S. on 2 January (12).
