Thanks to our WFSB newsroom administrative assistant Sarah Dahlstrom, who found this gem in her basement. A New Haven Nighthawks puck, complete with the Channel 3 logo. It was given out to viewers as a promotional item during the 1990-1991 season.
The Nighthawks were a minor league team that played for 22 years, often in the shadow of their major league neighbor in Hartford, the Whalers. We handed out Whalers swag, too
Sarah says she’s keep her Nighthawks puck, but if you see it on Ebay, let me know.
