When police finally tracked down Whitey Bulger in 2011, they found, $821,799.49 in the infamous Boston gangster’s Santa Monica, Calif., apartment.

They also found a 1986 Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup ring.

Bulger isn’t fighting to keep the near-$1 million stash (or most of his other possessions) as jurors deliberate 32 racketeering charges against the 83-year-old, but that ring — that’s apparently worth holding onto.

According to court documents shared by Jim Armstrong of Boston CBS affiliate WBZ, Bulger waived the right to have a jury decide whether he should keep the cash, weapons and other personal effects found in Apartment 303 at 1012 Third Street. But he asked to keep the ring, which was specifically excluded from the items Bulger had to forfeit.
