The Winter Classic Hockey Stick Story

New, comments

This has been getting a decent amount of play in Chicago. After the Winter Classic, Henrik Zetterberg gave his stick to a teenage fan. The fan was confronted by someone who identified himself as security and told the kid he could pick up the stick at customer service.

He wasn't. The kid went to customer service to find no stick.

The Red Wings heard about it and went to send the kid a new stick. But the old stick has been recovered. It's a nice (but a little bizarre) little story of how the stick went from the kid's hands to a Wrigley Field mens' room to North Carolina to Gurnee, Illinois.
