Players and coach Mike Babcock engaged in a series of shooting exercises with the FBI’s SWAT team at the Canton Police Department’s gun range.
“We got to shoot all kinds of different guns, rifles,” defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “It was pretty impressive what those guys do on a daily basis, gets you a little more understanding of how powerful the weapons are.
“It was pretty cool, how much force the guns have, how you have to hold it down. When we were holding those automatic weapons, the bullets were going everywhere.”
“It was a lot of fun, just to see what they have to go through for training, and the way they go through simulations,” Howard said. “From never having shot a gun to shooting an assault rifle was quite the rush.
Ian White and Tomas Holmstrom won a six-target, timed competition with Glock pistols.
“Those automatic weapons can really get your heart going,” White said. “(The Glocks) weren’t too bad, unless you have spaghetti wrists.”
