ITEM: Detroit Red Wings games used puck that has been converted into a bottle opener. Each comes in an NHL windowed gift-box with an authentication instruction card.
Each game starts with 30 pucks in a freezer. The Off-Ice Official, who sits in the penalty box, hands a puck to the On-Ice Official every 3 to 5 minutes of play. Players find that frozen pucks "sit" better on the ice compared to a warm puck which has a tendency to go up on its edge.
As pucks come out of play, the Off-Ice Official dries them, wraps them with athletic tape and records the date and the opponent's name on the tape. To find out the game or season your puck was played in, enter your hologram code at Authentication
NOTES: Each will have varying degrees of wear due to time on ice and teams periodically update logos to reflect milestones, anniversaries etc so team logo may be different than image shown. Aluminum bottle opener finding is engraved "Game Used."
DIMENSIONS: 3" in diameter x 1" high
AUTHENTICITY: Officially licensed by the National Hockey League. Puck openers and cuff links feature a tamper-evident hologram sticker that is adhered to each bottle opener to ensure authenticity.
