Hiway Federal Credit Union - ST. PAUL, Minn. (February 13, 2017) - Hiway Federal Credit Union® (Hiway), in collaboration with the Minnesota Wild, announces the return of a one-of-a-kind treasure hunt that gives prospectors the opportunity to win the cash value of the weight of an official National Hockey League puck in gold (valued at approximately $6,300).

Clues to where the Hiway Gold Puck is hidden will be posted on, Hiway’s Facebook page and via @HiwayFCU on Twitter each Friday beginning Friday, February 24, 2017 and through Friday, March 24, 2017 (unless the puck is located earlier). There will be a total of five (5) clues leading to the puck’s general location, hidden somewhere on public land in Ramsey County or Washington County, MN. The person who locates the puck will receive the cash value of the puck’s weight in gold from Hiway.

“Hiway is thrilled to give treasure seekers another opportunity to participate in a fun contest that blends our state’s passion for hockey with a chance to search for a valuable prize,” said Dave Boden, President/CEO of Hiway. “Fans loved last year’s hunt so much that we knew we needed to bring it back this season.”  

In the inaugural hunt in 2016, the Hiway Gold Puck was found in Crosby Farm Regional Park by Rob Brass of Chaska, MN and Steve Worthman of Saint Paul, MN. The two men found the puck, hidden in a sock filled with straw, shortly after the posting of the fifth and final clue.

Hiway, official credit union of the Minnesota Wild, also offers Wild fans the opportunity to show their team pride with their Minnesota Wild PowerPack, which includes a savings, checking, customized debit card, credit card and checks. Cardholders enjoy a 15% discount at all Hockey Lodge locations and have a chance to win Wild prizes with monthly drawings.
