It was one year ago this week that the Chicago Blackhawks ended a long drought and won the 2010 Stanley Cup. You’d think the puck Patrick Kane shot for the winning goal would be in a glass display case somewhere. Not so.
One of the officials that night came under the microscope earlier this year as evidence seemed to indicate he was the last one seen with it. Dan Miller denies he knows what happened to it.
However, the Chicago Tribune dug through a massive archive of photographs from that night and several show Miller skating away, puck in hand. It doesn’t mean he took it, of course.
“I pick up a thousand pucks a year,” Miller told the Tribune. “You can ask me what I did with a puck 10 minutes ago. I can’t remember every single thing I do with a puck.”
The case remains unsolved and on Thursday, it caught the attention of the always curious National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. Listen to their story.
