Alex Ovechkin has one of the hardest shots in hockey history and another goal puck has the scars to prove it.
Over the weekend, the NHL put all the Stadium Series goal pucks up for auction and Ovechkin’s is missing a chunk of vulcanized rubber.
The Stadium Series goal was Ovechkin’s 40th goal of the season and the 598th of his career. After catching the puck with the blade of his stick, Ovechkin fired the puck past Frederik Andersen.

As you’ll see below, none of the other goal pucks had this issue.
There was a huge dent in the puck.
