$50,000 Gretzky puck: Hall of Fame casts doubt | Vancouver Sun

Howe now? Hall of Fame casts doubt on $50,000 Gretzky puck:
A plaque designed as a clock and displayed at the Hockey Hall of Fame showing 14 pucks -- including the one the Hall says is Gretzky's 1,851st-point puck, at 12 o'clock.
"The bizarre battle over the true identity of the 22-year-old puck from one of hockey’s most important milestones comes at a time when a similar controversy surrounds the whereabouts of the puck fired home by Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane last year to give his team an overtime victory in Game 6 of the NHL finals, and its first Stanley Cup since 1961.

A Chicago restaurateur has offered (coincidentally) a $50,000 reward, and an NHL linesman was briefly pulled from playoff duty in April, after an ESPN investigation explored the still-unsolved mystery of what happened to Kane’s Cup-winning puck."
