Each season, Tokens is able to secure a limited number of game used pucks from the teams. We leave them just we get them, that means bumps, bruises & blemishes. We even leave the tape that the off ice official wraps around the puck denoting opponent and date of the game.
The one thing we do add is bottle opener hardware to give this collectible a purpose (besides being really cool).
Note: 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."
Each comes in an NHL windowed gift-box with an authentication instruction card.
From On Ice to Off Ice
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
