This is a game-used Keith Tkachuk Pink TPS Response Lite stick. Tkachuk used this stick on March 18, 2007 when the Atlanta Thrashers played the Buffalo Sabres. It was used as a part of TPS' initiative to help raise awareness for breast cancer, with players around the league using these special pink sticks to raise money for research. Most players just used them in practice or pre-game warm-ups, but Tkachuk used his throughout the game. In the game he recorded his 26th assist of the season and scored the overtime game-winning goal, his 26th goal of the season. This was career goal #472 for him. The assist and goal were points #919 and 920 in his career, respectively.

The stick shows very nice use with heavy tar on the shaft. The handle and blade are fully taped with the blade heavily waxed. His children's names: "Matthew, Brady, Taryn" are written on the top of the butt end. There is also a "10" written on the back of the handle tape in silver marker, but I am not sure what this stands for. The stick is also signed in black marker on the heel. It came from the TPS-Auctionwire auction and has their COA.
