    I shot a reception at the Ralph a couple years ago for some die hard fans (who even live streamed the game during their reception!) I admit I don't know much about the team (or hockey in general) but the staff at the Ralph were WONDERFUL and so accommodating. They offered their help wherever possible to make our job easier and to get our clients the best photos possible. Great venue to work with!
