Ted Donato Autographed Harvard Hockey Puck

An authentic Veritas autographed puck, signed by The Robert D. Ziff '88 Head Coach for Harvard Men's Ice Hockey Ted Donato '91.

Donato, who won an NCAA championship as a player with the Crimson, played in the Olympics and enjoyed a 13-year NHL career. As an undergraduate, he finished his career 11th on the Crimson's career scoring chart (50 goals, 94 assists, 144 points) and remains 12th in that category. He earned All-ECAC and All-Ivy League accolades while serving as the 95th captain of Harvard hockey in his 1990-91 senior season. He was named Most Outstanding Player of the 1989 NCAA Frozen Four, where Harvard downed Minnesota, 4-3, in overtime of the NCAA championship game.

Donato was a member of seven United States National Teams, including the 1992 Olympic team. He tied for the team lead in scoring with four goals and three assists in eight games in the Olympics. He also played in the World Championships in 1997 (4-2-6 in 8 GP), 1999 (2-6-8 in 8 GP) and 2002 (1-3-4 in 7 GP) and in the 1988 World Junior Championship (3-2-5 in 7 GP).

Donato was selected by the Boston Bruins in the fifth round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft (98th overall), and he signed with his hometown club in March 1992 following the Olympic Games. His 13-year pro career included stops in New York (with the Rangers and Islanders), Los Angeles, Ottawa, Anaheim and St. Louis. He later returned to the Bruins as a free agent in July 2003.

This puck is identical to the game pucks used on the ice at all home Harvard men's hockey games. A letter of authenticity will accompany this auction item.
