Rick Macleish Philadelphia Flyers Goal Puck Toronto Maple Leafs Puck - Includes Registration Certificate
Lot #398
This Toronto Maple Leafs logo puck was used to score a goal by Rick MacLeish on December 8, 1973, while the Flyers where on their way to their first Stanley Cup Championship. MacLeish was the 4th overall selection in the 1970 NHL Amatuer draft by the Boston Bruins. He would never suit up for the Bruins, instead beginning a 14-year career with the Philadelphia Flyers where he would spend parts of 12 of those seasons. While with the Flyers, Rick would partake in 4 Stanley Cup Finals emerging victorious 2 times. MacLeish scored the game winning goal in game 6 of the 1974 Cup Finals on home ice as the Flyers won their first Stanley Cup. He was the Flyers first ever 50-goal man, a feat he accomplished in 1972-73 and he played in 3 NHL All Star games.

In the summer of 1981, MacLeish was traded away from his beloved Flyers, the only team he knew. He began the year in Hartford and was dealt again mid-season to the Penguins where he suited up in 40 contests and sparked the upstart team offensively. In 1982-83, Rick performed at a point per game clip, but had his season shortened by injury. He was signed as a free agent by the Flyers the following summer, spent half a season with them and was then dealt to the Red Wings where he finished out his career.

These goal pucks were only labeled for 2 seasons in the early 1970’s. This puck will be accompanied by the original Goal-Puck Registration Certificate.
