1970’s Dennis Polonich Detroit Red Wings 10K Gold Team Ring
Lot #493
Dennis Polonich 10-karat gold ring featuring the Red Wings Winged Wheel log in front a big red stone. Polonich was a tough guy who played in the NHL with the Red Wings starting in 1974-75 until 1982-83. During that time Polonich was mostly back and forth between the Red Wings and their AHL affiliate in Adirondack. In the 4-year period between 1975-76 and 1978-79, Polonich racked up PIM totals of 302, 274, 254 and 208, all with Detroit. On October 25, 1978, Polonich got into a scuffle with Wilf Paiement of the Colorado Rockies. Paiement smashed Polonich across the face with his stick, leaving Polonich with a broken nose, facial lacerations and a concussion. Polonich sued and was awarded with a $850,000 settlement in 1982.



The ring is a size 10 ½ and weighs about 15 grams. It is engraved inside with “Dennis Polonich” and “Jostens 10K”.
