Have you ever gotten a puck off the ice?

Im 18, and I got a warm-up puck at one game before.
My dad's 54 and he got the puck when it came into the stands on Ray Bourque nght (he was 50 or so at the time, and had been going to games and following the B's all his life so I was glad to see him get that). This was before they put netting up behind the goals.

Those are the only 2 times my family has a gotten a puck off the ice. Have any of you guys/your family members been lucky enough to snag a puck when it came into the stands?

I got one for my GF at a New Mexico Scorpions game of the CHL. That's about it.

when I clicked on the thread I thought it was going to be about shooting/passing the puck. Now I get it. No.

Oh, after thinking about it, yes, I understand why. Guess I should have worded it better,

When I was in tyke, I would take slapshots with my blade angled underneath the puck so that it would come off the ice. Those were some special days!

Errr.. oh! Nope, I've never had the opportunity to fetch an errant puck.

I haven't, but last season I saw a ref at a Bruins game toss a puck over the glass to a little kid. About 15 minutes later in the game he came back and pretended like he was out of pucks, and could he have the puck back. It was good to see that level of interaction with the fans.

I've gotten a couple pucks at practices, when they were shot into the netting or handed over the glass to me by players.

I've missed out on quite a few at warm-ups, as I'm not usually paying attention and have a camera in my hands. Once a puck came close to whacking me off the head.

I've had pucks "shot" at me, technically at the glass where I was sitting, during warmups. Dallman was infamous for doing it every single game, both in Providence during the lockout and in Boston.

Never gotten one during game-play and never been hit by a puck. I'd like that streak to continue.

My father got a puck from the game between Sweden and Soviet in the 1987 World Championships. He gave it to me and now it sits on my shelf next to an Emperor Palpatine figure

Slightly off topic here, but this is my favorite souveneir-at-a-game story:

I was at a PawSox game about three years ago. The Sox ended the inning on a ground out. As the opposing first baseman was heading to the dugout, he tossed the ball into the box seats on the first base side. About 100 kids put their arms up to catch the ball. The ball evaded all 100 hands, and landed squarely on the top of the head of the one kid who wasn't paying attention. It bounced off his head about 15 feet up and back, and some other kid caught the ball on the fly. Fortunately, the kid's noggin was ok, although I don't think he heard the end of it from his buddies.

I've never caught a puck at a game.

When I was a lad, my grandfather knew someone in the Bull Gang at the Garden. I got to go watch a pre-game skate down by the bench area. Doug Keans handed me a puck, and his stick cause he had chipped it up during the warm up. Still have both.

I got one years back. My girlfriend was sitting in the aisle, and I was in the second seat. The puck cam over the glass, bounced off a couple people, and landed two steps behind my girlfriend. She looked at me and said " Hey, the puck" as matter of factly as you could get. I proceeded to push her out of the way and grab the puck just before anyone else located it. She was mad at me for pushing her out of my way but hockey is a physical sport...

Nice, and hey, if it was one of Moog's sticks, technically, you're telling the truth. DB is just the one who gave it to you.

Yeah, it was pretty cool. I'll never forget all the drunken oafs trying to get it from me throughout the game too. Sadly, being the knucklehead I was (and some will tell you still am), I did use the stick in a few street hockey games. Not much damage done though. No curve on it whatsoever either, which you don't find much anymore.

My brother and I were at the "Last Hurrah" (last game played at the old Boston Garden) and we were standing near the gate where the B's exit, and Brent Hughes flipped a puck to us. Brent Hughes...you da man...also I was at BU hockey game when I was 10 (pre Jack Parker) and Coach Jack Kelley called me over to the BU bench (right in the middle of the game) and gave me a brand spanking new hockey stick. How cool was that for a 10 year old? Last game ever between BU and Colby. BU won 9-3. (1963)

There's nothing as excting as sitting at UMaine home game in the student section right over the back of the away net for warmups. Shots of the crossbar whizzing by your face, bouncing around and taking out tubas... its priceless...

The only pucks that I've ever gotten were in the same Lowell Lock Monsters game. I went with my friend and got 3 pucks that were sent out of play(during the game). I gave one to the little girl in front of us, gave one to my friend, and kept one for myself. My puck has long since been destroyed by my German Shephard who thought it'd be cool to jump on the couch and then onto the mantle to get a new round rubber playtoy.

I believe Crosby uses a perfectly straight stick.

Reminds me of that scene in FeverPitch, where the girl, forget her name, takes one off the noggin while she's on the computer. They guy doesn't even checks on her, just Hi Fives his buddy who got the foul ball.

My kid got a practice puck from Kovalchuk. He slips one through the glass at most home games.

I had a game puck bounce off the heel of my hand - my daughter was on my lap, so I couldn't two hand it - the guy next to me got it.

Perhaps. I was referring more to goalie sticks, though maybe some use straight ones still too.
