Golden Knights fan creating 1 October memorial puck

Posted: Updated:

A Henderson hockey puck collector is sharing his passion with others to honor victims and support survivors of 1 October. 

Kenny Johnson has collected pucks for years, but said the puck that is the most special to him, isn't in his collection yet. 

"It's now in the process of being made and becoming a reality," Johnson said. 

Johnson created his own puck; one that pays tribute to the 58 people killed during the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting on Oct. 1. 

"With everything that's going on here in Vegas and how great it is, we still need to remember the night of Oct. 1," he said. 

Johnson said he plans on selling the pucks; the pre-sale started on Tuesday. The profits from the pucks will go to the foundation set up in honor of Quinton Robbins, a Basic High School graduate who was killed in the shooting, and who was Johnson's family friend. 

"He was a great quarterback, and we always watched him play, every Sunday night," Johnson said. "It just means a lot to me that we can do this, and, yeah. it's something personal for me."

For more information on how to purchase one of Johnson's pucks, he said people can go to the Facebook group he created for fans to buy and trade Golden Knights pucks.
