My name is Ian Guerin. I am 9 years old and in 4th grade. I live in Poland Spring, Maine. I enjoy playing with my friends at school, baseball, basketball, everybody's it tag & hockey. I began playing hockey at the age of 2 because my dad played when he was a kid and he wanted me and my brother to try it. We liked it. My dad told me he DID NOT want me or my brother to play goalie so I figured I'd try it. After only 1 week, I loved it! I am in my 4th season of being a goalie. Last year, my squirt team, Lewiston Jr Pirates, won the state championship. This year, my squirt team, L/A Jr Fighting Spirit has played a total of 5 games so far and I'm happy to say we are 5-0 with 2 shutouts!!
My mom read an article in USA Hockey magazine about Shutouts For Kids and showed it to me. I told her that I wanted to do that too. I have chosen 50% of my proceeds to go to the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine because I want to help kids who are sick. The other 50% will be donated to Shutouts For Kids.
