Federal officials seized more than a million dollars of gangster Whitey Bulger's money when he was finally captured, but he allegedly only wants a Stanley Cup ring likely given to him by Milton resident Chris "Knuckles" Nilan.
Bulger was found guilty of multiple charges for murder this week. According to ESPN (via the Globe), Bulger is fighting to get back his Montreal Canadiens 1986 Stanley Cup championship ring via court documents.
Nilan, who grew up in West Roxbury and lives on Adams Street in Milton, played at Catholic Memorial before a 13-year career in the NHL.
The government has the ring, and is "property that falls into a category eligible to be permanently seized."
