This stick comes from Pittsburgh Penguins fan Matt. Here’s the story of how Matt obtained this stick, in his words:
“My dad had Penguins season tickets since 2005 and they were two rows off the glass at Mellon arena and five seats to the left of where the other team came onto the ice. Me and a friend would take off our Pens jerseys and ask everyone for sticks. Niklas Hagman gave my friend his stick and I didn’t think I was gonna get one the Cujo was the last guy to come off the ice and handed me his.”
Matt held onto this stick for almost 9 years until he felt it was time to part with it. Matt, thanks for sharing your story and entrusting me with this little piece of hockey history!
