CHICAGO (AP) - The puck Blackhawks All-Star Patrick Kane scored the Stanley Cup winning goal with last year is missing and the FBI has offered to help a Chicago businessman try to find it.

Kane scored in overtime to beat the Flyers in Game 6 at Philadelphia in June. The puck has been missing ever since.

Chicago FBI spokesman Ross Rice told The Chicago Tribune that the bureau is helping with the search.

"The people who are doing this are doing it on their own time," he told the newspaper. "They feel they are a part of history."

The paper reported that local restaurateur Grant DePorter, CEO of Harry Caray's, offered a $50,000 reward for the puck and has been leading the efforts to find it.

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
