Ottawa: A Canadian museum has snapped up the world's oldest-known ice hockey stick made out of maple for $300,000.
The "Moffatt stick" was hewn in the 1830s in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, from a single piece of sugar maple, the Canadian Museum of History said on Friday.
The stick was owned by one family — the Moffatts — from its creation until the early 1980s, when it was given to a barbershop owner who then sold it in 2008 to the man the museum bought it from.
The museum, located in Ottawa's suburbs.
