The Summit Series Puck

from the CP via the Sporting News,

When the horn sounded to end the game, (Pat) Stapleton instinctively picked up what would become a cherished memento.

“Why I picked the puck up I have no idea,” he said. “I had control of the puck as the game ended. I had it on my stick. I went to shoot it down the ice, then I just decided to put it in my glove. There was no plan to it.”

Asked where he keeps it, he said, “It’s been all over the place. It’s a secret.”

As for what he eventually plans to do with it, Stapleton said, “That’s a good question, I don’t have a good, clear answer for that yet. It’s taken on legs of its own. Once the mystery is over, it’s over, right?”
