1. Chad Erickson
Was looking for pucks and information and found this article, which contains quite a few quotes from Chad. He was the last Devils goalie who started a game before Martin Brodeur got his first NHL win.
2. Richard Shulmistra: I learned Richard is very active in a youth hockey program near where he lives. I reached out and the executive director got back to me, and said he was friends with Richard and would get my info to him. Never heard from Richard, so I sent a follow up email to the director, and got no response to that.
So I sent the puck, sharpie, return envelope, and a small donation to the youth hockey program in hopes that someone will receive it and just hold it out and say “sign this please”.
Hanna Kamppuri: one of the first pucks I mailed out, never heard from him and it never came back. He is in Finland and I am running out of options to find him. Does that mean I’m….Finnished???
Sam St. Laurent: a total phantom. Zero contact and not a lot of leads out there.
Have a lead that you think will help me get a puck from one of these guys? It’s $40 USD to you if you do.

Chad Erickson- There were several addresses in Warroad that I sent to but I’m not sure which one eventually worked. His wife is Holly if that helps in your search. I believe she is a teacher there
Hannu Kamppuri- years ago I contacted the Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame and gave my email to Hannu who provided an address and signed some things for me
Sam St. Laurent- No idea but if you ever find him let me know
Thanks for the response!
I have sent to several addresses in Warroad, and tried to reach him through his wife, to no avail.
I will try with the Finnish HOF, I appreciate the advice!
Believe it or not, 7 months later, Erickson returned a signed puck, with an apology for taking so long! I love hockey players, only athletes in the world who stay that humble!!
