Hall of Fame ring re­trieved from lake

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

A scuba-div­ing trea­sure hunter who found an Amer­i­can Hockey League Hall of Fame ring in one of New York’s Fin­ger Lakes has re­turned it to its owner.

Gary Gavurnik re­turned the prized ring to for­mer hockey star Dick Gamble on Mon­day. Gavurnik found it with a metal de­tec­tor in Canandaigua Lake.

The 88-year-old Cana­dian Gamble starred for the Rochester Amer­i­cans and retired in the 1969-70 sea­son. He was in­ducted into the AHL Hall of Fame in 2007.

He gave the ring to his son, Craig, who wore it ev­ery day for seven years be­fore los­ing it in the lake. He never told his dad, and or­dered a re­place­ment.
