A stick autographed by the members of the 1924 Canadian gold medal Olympic hockey team is in the process of being authenticated. If found to be positively identified, the stick may be put up for public auction.
Andrew Love of Toronto says the stick has been handed down in his family dating back to his maternal grandmother. The stick is said to be incredible shape considering it's age, although it is not believed to have been used in any competition.
1924 was the first year the Winter Olympics were held, although hockey was first an Olympic sport back in the 1920 Summer Games. Canada's entry in 1924 were the Toronto Granites, including such stars as Harry Watson, Hooley Smith and manager Bill Hewitt.
