Once again, Paul Henderson is credited with making hockey history.
A Montreal-based auction house says it's received a certificate from Guinness World Records about the jersey Mr. Henderson was wearing when he scored the winning goal in the 1972 Summit Series against the Soviets.
Classic Auctions says they have been informed that Guinness has classified it as the most expensive hockey jersey ever sold at auction.
The winning bid came in at $1.275-million two years ago.
Marc Juteau, president of Classic Auctions, says he was actually told by the Guinness people that they can't find a comparable scenario for any auction, in any sport. He says the item was listed in a special hockey category as a matter of caution, to ensure accuracy.
The famous No. 19 jersey was sold to Toronto real-estate magnate Mitchell Goldhar.
Mr. Henderson's tie-breaking goal came in the last minute of the eighth and final game. Canada won the series 4-3, with one tie.Report Typo/Error
