Junior pucks

Using pucks from a player's junior team(s) usually brings a favorable response. Some have asked where I've found the pucks. Others appreciate the homework I've done to find out a little bit about their careers. To date, no player had refused to sign a junior puck.

Try calling U.S.-based junior teams, such as the QJMHL's Lewiston Maineiacs (207.783.2009) and the OHL's Saginaw Spirit (989.497.7747), as well as the WHL's Red Deer Rebels (403.341.6000), early in the season to get your supply. I placed my OHL puck order yesterday.

Pucks pictured above, from left:

Soo Greyhounds: Jeff Carter, Philadelphia Phantoms, May 25, 2005, in Providence, R.I.
London Knights: Brendan Shanahan, Detroit Red Wings, Aug. 25, 2005, in Boston
Belleville Bulls: Jason Spezza, Binghamton Senators, Feb. 13, 2005, Manchester, N.H.

The Spezza-signed puck is the 500th of my collection.
