They actually have pucks issued for a certain number of years; current design (Sher-Wood, slender silver ring) has been in use since 2009-10 season and each team has their crest screened on their home arena batch of pucks. I don't know the amount of pucks used over the course of a single game. Of course the NHL stumbled upon another source of revenue by issuing special edition game pucks, like the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs or the Winter Classic.

Speaking of game-used pucks...

Any idea about what happened to the puck used for the final faceoff of Game 7 of the 1994 SCF, when MacTavish won the draw vs Bure and Larmer pinned it against the boards to clinch the Rangers' first Cup win since 1940?
