Former 1994 Stanley Cup Champion Esa Tikkanen has found himself in the middle of a legal battle in the Finland and is forced to sell his most important memorabilia from his career to pay off fees.

Tikkanen used to play for the Rangers for a short period of time as he joined the team for the 1992-93 season and ended up being moved around a lot before making a return in 1996-97 and then again he was moved but he made it back to New York in 1998-99 before retiring from the league.
However, Tikkanen is facing aggravated tax fraud charges in Finland. Back in 2023 he even had some of his belongings seized by Finnish authorities, The value of his property that was seized was worth 168,000 Euros ($182,406 USD). The ruling was apparently overturned and his belongings were returned.
"Last year, he had 168,000 euros of property seized by Finnish authorities, but that was overturned." Hockey Worldwide said.


Tikkanen has put up four of his Stanley Cup rings up for auction including three from his time with the Edmonton Oilers and his 1994 ring from the New York Rangers. The only ring that he has decided to keep is from his very first Stanley Cup championship with the Edmonton Oilers in 1985.
Along with that he even put up two of his game-worn jerseys are up for auction. One is from his time with the New York Rangers in 1993-94 and the other is a game-worn jersey from the Stanley Cup Final in 1998 when he was playing for the Washington Capitals.
