That sucks. That happened to me on my second shift with a brand new Reebok 10k (top of the line when it was out). Never sent it in for warranty though. Should have. Not sure they would have gave it to me.

I thought it was a messy goal but my coach congratulated me for my persistence.

I now have a puck with some tape on it testifying to having scored my first goal. Not bad for a 36 year old who only started learning to skate in August.

Great feeling!
Congrats! First of many, hopefully.
