My mother and two young nieces enjoy going to see the AHL team of the Peoria Riverman. One of their many times seeing them play, my nieces received two official game pucks. The girls were excited to get these fresh off the ice and still cold souvenirs. Soon after, they attended the last game of the 2012/2013 season. As tradition of the end of season game, the fans get to go down on the ice and meet the players and get autographs. The girls brought with them their official pucks to this game and took them down to the ice. They got to shake hands with and had their pucks autographed by the players. Needless to say, my nieces were beside themselves with excitement. These autographed official hockey pucks are now prized possessions of them both. In addition, what makes these special is the fact that not only was it the last game of the season, it was the last game for this Peoria Riverman team. The Peoria Riverman was purchased by the Vancouver Canucks and will move to Utica, New York.

Thanks Dave…It was fun to do…perhaps the biggest challenge was remembering to take pictures and good pictures along the way before moving on to the next steps
