There will be no investigations, mysteries or conspiracy theories this time around surrounding the game-winning puck that delivered the Chicago Blackhawks their second Stanley Cup in four seasons.
Blackhawks president and CEO John McDonough is in possession of the puck Blackhawks forward Dave Bolland scored with 59 seconds left in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals to defeat the Boston Bruins 3-2 and clinch the series, a team spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday afternoon.
The whereabouts of the puck from the Hawks' 2010 Cup-clinching game remains unknown.
Patrick Kane clinched the 2010 Stanley Cup for the Blackhawks when he scored the game-winning goal in overtime of Game 6 against the Philadelphia Flyers on June 9, 2010. Amidst the Blackhawks' celebration, the puck went missing and hasn't been found despite investigations and someone putting up $50,000 reward for it.
Blackhawks team historian Bob Verdi wrote in a story on ChicagoBlackhawks.com Tuesday that McDonough delivered the news about the puck to the Blackhawks during their postgame celebration at TD Garden in Boston.
"I've got the puck," McDonough reportedly said with the puck in his hand.
