Tickets for the season opener are arranged, excitement builds and a new world is ready to open up to you.
But before you get too ahead of yourself there are a few things you need to know about your potential boyfriend/girlfriend.

His future status as an NHL star was furthered at the 1978 World Junior Championships in Quebec City, where Gretzky played for his home country and led the entire tournament in scoring.The young Gretzky spent countless hours on the ice, honing his talents as a skater, shooter and passer.As a result, Gretzky often played in leagues that catered to older boys.Do not under any circumstances wade in and take offense on behalf of your partner.If a team mate ridicules your partner’s pubic hair style for example then never, ever correct them. According to hair experts it shouldn’t have too much effect on baldness, so if you are worried that your partner is going to end up like Patrick Stewart or Skunk Anansie then don’t be. Your time is better spent elsewhere, even if that means ploughing through a box set of Love Island re-runs.This is so they can bitch and whine about your moaning behaviour for half an hour before going on the ice.Only joking of course, the players need to arrive early so they can warm up, organise equipment and go through tactics with the coach.
