Well you might have thought that it was just Chicago searching for the puck from Patrick Kane’s game winning goal in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup in Philadelphia.
But according to a Chicago Tribune report today, the FBI has gotten involved in the investigation. The FBI examined tapes of the game to determine if they could see who took the puck, but so far the footage has proved useless.
The owner of Harry Carry’s is opening a new branch at Navy Pier with a hockey theme and offered a $50,000 reward for the puck. When a Philadelphia resident submitted the puck, the owner turned to the FBI to verify whether it was the real puck.
Once the FBI conducted its analysis it was clear that the puck was not the Game 6 winner.
So it will be interesting to see how much time and how many resources the FBI devotes to this “search”. But with the HD technology and the FBI’s resources, they believe that they will be able to identify nicks and scratches on the puck so match any allegedly legitimate pucks turned in.
Meanwhile, there has been no statement or verification about whether the FBI has gotten a search warrant for Chris Pronger’s house.
