PHILADELPHIA - Federal authorities investigating the sale of shirts and jerseys wrongly branded NHL Winter Classic merchandise say they've seized counterfeit goods worth an estimated US$350,000.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations office says it intercepted 150 international mail parcels and seized merchandise from vendors outside Citizens Bank Park, where the Philadelphia Flyers met the New York Rangers on Monday.

Investigators seized more than 1,600 items in all, including counterfeit MLB, NFL, NBA and NCAA merchandise.

Authorities say the investigation is continuing and no arrests have been made.
