New York Rangers’ 1994 Stanley Cup rink is on the auction block
New York Rangers fans didn’t have to suffer quite as long as Chicago Cubs fans between championships.
Their wait was 54 years between Stanley Cup victories. From 1940 to 1994.
And now, someone willing to dip into their wallets is in position to own the very rink — or pieces of it — that the team defeated the Vancouver Canucks on in Game 7 at Madison Square Garden to capture the Cup.
The Hockey News reports that Goldin Auctions has been enlisted to sell "the complete 1991-2013 NY Rangers Hockey rink from Madison Square Garden." And some of the pieces will have autographs of players from the 1994 team on them. Starting bid: $50,000.
So if Mark Messier, Brian Leetch & Co. brought tears to your eyes in 1994, and you have deep pockets, this is the ultimate piece (or pieces?) of New York Rangers Stanley Cup memorabilia.
The auction begins Monday, and the complete listing can be found here.
