When a Kitchener Ranger rookie scores first Ontario Hockey League Goal.
Or a Kitchener Ranger Goalie earns first OHL shutout.
I make a desk plaque to display the prized " FIRST GOAL/SHUTOUT" puck .
These I usually make from White Ash and the wood is from our bush lot.

My First Puck Plaque.

photo062  it is not that difficult

email to Kirsten from me December 15 2021
Hi Kirsten
Have you received the plaque ? Mailed on the 5 th. to your parent. If it was lost or damaged in transit let me know and I will make another one.
Stay safe.
David

Kirsten response to me December 15 2021
Yes my parents received it A-OK ! It's awesome !
I will be home on the 23rd and will take a picture with my game puck and send it your way once it's complete :)
I can't thank you enough for this ! It's a really cool way to remember a milestone.
Thanks again David,
Kirsten Welsh

email to Kirsten from me December 15 2021
Oh, that's good news, I was concerned it lost it's way, when you send a picture holding the plaque with the game puck in your official lineslady jersey, would you allow me to add this photo to my website hockey puck plaque page ?
Please. Take care, stay safe, and best wishes.
David

email from Kirsten to me December 15 2021
Absolutely David. I would be honored ! !
I'll be in touch with that picture.
Stay safe and Happy Holidays !

As of March 26 2022 no photo, that's the thanks you get.
Monday April 11 2022 I watched the Kitchener Rangers playing the Erie Otters in Erie and guess who is working the lines, Kirsten Welsh, so she is still around but just no time to send that photo.
It must take all of 30 seconds to snap a pix and email. Here it is October 16 2022 and STILL no responce from Kirsten, Oh well, maybe next year.
February 28 2023, Hamilton Bulldpgs in Erie, Kristen working the lines, still no responce regarding the photo she promised.
March 23 2023 only a couple of games to go in regular season, still NO photo.
