National Post (Latest Edition) - - SPORTS - As­so­ci­ated Press

Ed Belfour’s de­ci­sion to trade his Olympic gold medal to go into the dis­till­ing busi­ness with his son has paid off. The medal the Hockey Hall of Fame goalie won at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games sold for US$ 34,777. Over­all, the 66 items of hockey mem­o­ra­bilia Belfour put up for sale fetched nearly $179,000. Last week, Belfour said he was sell­ing part of his col­lec­tion to join son, Dayn, and es­tab­lish Belfour Dis­til­leries. The busi­ness is to be based in Texas and fo­cus on dis­till­ing bour­bons and whiskeys.
