Finding A Stress Relief
A professional hockey player does not have much down time. With a demanding regular season schedule including three or four games a week, the NHL schedule can often become overbearing on a player. Add the stress of having pucks shot at your head 30 times a game, and a goaltender has to find a place where they can relieve their stress. For Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller, his avenue of reprieve comes in the form of photography.

The East Lansing, Michigan native began his hobby when he netminded at Michigan State during his collegiate career. He got hooked after buying a camera and beautifully capturing a picture of the sunset over a lake in Michigan. Miller sees a lot of similarities between being a goaltender and being a photographer.

"It's on my own time," said Miller. "I get to do my own thing."

Miller shoots a lot of his photos during his downtime in the summer but will try to sneak out to enjoy his diversion from hockey whenever possible.

The goaltender takes pleasure in "freezing time" and shooting pictures that his friends and him enjoy down the road.
