The Blackhawks' Stanley Cup championship rings were not cheap, and that's putting it lightly.
The rings cost between $12,000 and $13,000 apiece, that's according to St. Louis-based hockey writer Andy Strickland over at TotalHockey.com, who heard it right from Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman.
The team received its rings in a private ceremony a few days before the Hawks' season-opener against the Capitals last week.
Bowman is in the process of delivering the rings to those members of the 2013 Cup-winning squad who are no longer employed by the Hawks. That includes Daniel Carcillo, now with the Kings, who had his ring hand-delivered by Bowman earlier this week. And Dave Bolland, who scored the Cup-winning goal in Game 6 and now plays with the Maple Leafs, will receive his Thursday, according to Strickland.
