TORONTO -- An ice hockey stick believed to have been carved between 1852 and 1856 was sold at auction for $2.2 million and will be displayed at the NHL Hall of Fame.

The hickory stick is purported to be the oldest hockey stick. The oldest stick on display in the Hall of Fame is from 1881.

Seller Gord Sharpe said 26 bids were submitted worldwide, with the winning bid from a Canadian who plans to offer the stick to the hall.

Proceeds from the sale will go to fanscharity.com and its World Charity Award program, both run by Sharpe. The goal is to promote the importance of charities, particularly those aimed at children.

Sharpe said the stick was carved by Alexander Rutherford and handed to him by his great uncle, Melville Rutherford. Before the auction, Sharpe's stick was on display in a glass case in Wayne Gretzky's Toronto restaurant.
