They’ve been the story of the year so far in the National Hockey League: the expansion team that’s not only filling its arena with fans, but filling nets with pucks on a regular basis. The Las Vegas Golden Knights own the best record in the Pacific Division and may well end their first season as the most successful expansion franchise in any sport—ever.
Some of those early season pucks—some shot by Knights and some by well-known visitors—have just hit the auction block. MeiGray Auctions is offering 39 fully authenticated goal pucks in an auction that will run through the end of the month.
Among those being offered is the 44th career coal of Winnipeg Jets star Patrik Laine from a November 10 game and others from Radek Faksa, Shea Theodore, James Neal, Brent Burns and Jonathan Marchessault. All carry the Knights logo on one side and the NHL’s 100th anniversary mark on the other. All come in a plastic case with the specific game details inscribed on the front. Minimum bids on the pucks opened at $50.
The goal pucks are lifted off the ice by an on-ice NHL official, identified and secured by an NHL off-ice official in the arena during or after the game, and then authenticated and affixed with a hologram by MeiGray. The company has an exclusive game-used memorabilia deal with the Golden Knights.
Bidding continues through January 31 at MeiGrayAuctions.com.
