Danny Gonzalez, 45.

“Spent about 6 or 7 years in IHIH. Fondest Memory was winning an essay contest to have dinner with Mike Richter. During that dinner, Mike Richter mentioned how many Ice Skates Mark Messier goes through in a year. I asked what he did with them, he said he just got rid of them. The next week, Mike Richter had a used pair of old Daoust skates. A normal person would put them away and never use them….I wore them immediately!”
