Did you ever hear back from the Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame? 

Nope, I sent one follow up and they said they hadn’t heard back from him. I don’t want to be too pushy.

Also with Sam St Laurent , have you thought about writing to the local newspaper of his home town and seeing if they will write a short story on your quest in search of a lead?

Think this is a paper that covers his home town. Worth a shot? 

I had not considered that, but I do like the idea. I may have to look into that. Thanks!

I’m crushed, quite literally. 

Today I got a package that for a split second appeared to be a puck being returned by Hannu Kamppuri. After wishful thinking subsided, I noticed that in fact it was the package I sent to Hannu in Finland on July 22 of last year, being returned for non-delivery. 

I guess I can be thankful to get my puck, case and sharpie back, softens the loss a little. And, he didn’t ignore my request, so that’s good. 

As noted in my first sentence above, the box is a little worse for wear.

I think what really happened was that package was delivered to you in perfect condition. You thought it was a new puck. And when you realised it was a return the package suffered the consequences.

In retrospect, the puck and case is about $15, $2 for a sharpie...I got back $17 today. Lessens the hit, I think the postage on that one was like $22 on top of that. 

Would have been cooler if it was my signed puck coming back, obviously.

Have you delved into this?   Not sure how common a name his is, but it's a business about "Recreation"...........  and there's a business address

Then saw this....someone else was searching for him (maybe you) and someone posted this, but it's a decade ago

The Finland address I used was only from like a year ago, which is disconcerting. It definitely feels like maybe I am going to have to just be happy with what I have and keep searching.

It’s actually the same address in both, but no, I have not tried it.

Agreed. Without Hannu, I can never be…

…Finnished.

Do we have any Finnish members on this board? Wondering the best way to send money to get this thing sent back if I do send it out. The last one I just winged it with a note that asked him to contact me so I can send money for return shipping. Would be better to make it as easy as possible. Inside the US its easy to do a return envelope, outside, not so much.

I just hope Fitz (or whoever the GM is) works as hard in trying to find a goalie as you do tracking down goalie picks.  

From your keyboard to G-d’s ears…..

You might have better on HF boards, they definitely have some Finnish members over there, especially if you post in the main board or the international sections.

Noticed that one of the Refs in the playoffs was called Francois St Lauren. I imagine it's a common name , but worth a shot? Could be a relative?

It seems to be a very common name, but I will investigate, thanks.
