He does not know who picked up the puck that Patrick Kane used to beat him for the Stanley Cup-clinching overtime goal in Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final; he does not know who has the puck now, or where it might be; and he never wants to see the puck again.
"I've heard there's a lot of controversy about it," Leighton said. "I don't know where the puck is. I've been asked many times. The last I saw it was under the net. I lifted the net up and kicked it. I know the referee or linesman was beside me and that was it. That was really the last thing on my mind, finding where that puck was."
Leighton expects to hear more about the missing puck and Kane's Cup-winning goal next month, when he arrives for training camp with the Blackhawks.
