“I was looking on Twitter and Facebook, and so many of my friends and people in the hockey community sharing their sticks, and a photo of what they’ve done the last couple days,” said Starr.

“I thought that was great, but then I got home and I saw that one of my neighbours put a stick out on their front porch, and that’s when it really hit me.”
