This road red knit gamer by CCM was worn by Patrick Roy during the 1991-92 NHL season. There are many who consider Roy to be the greatest goaltender in the history of the sport. He retired as the NHL’s all-time winningest goalie with 551 wins, a longstanding record that was held by the legendary Terry Sawchuk and has since been surpassed by Martin Brodeur. Roy is the current record holder with an amazing 151 playoff Wins, more than 50 victories better than Martin Brodeur who resides in 2nd place. To go along with his 4 Stanley Cup rings, he carries 3 Conn Smythe Trophies as most valuable player of the playoffs. The first of those playoff MVP’s came as a rookie in 1986 when Roy led the upstart Canadiens back to Stanley Cup glory. Also to his credit are 3 Vezina Trophies and 5 Jennings Trophies, noting his excellence between the pipes. Patrick was 6 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star while also appearing in double-digit NHL All Star games.
Following parts of 13 seasons tending goal and 2 Stanley Cups for the Montreal Canadiens, Roy was dealt to the expansion Colorado Avalanche where he continued his dominance and led his brethren to another pair of Stanley Cup titles. All told Patrick guarded the pipes over 19 NHL seasons. He went out while he was still one of the games best, posting 30+ Wins and 60+ games in each of his last 11 non-strike seasons. His GAA in his final season was 2.18, while the season prior he posted a remarkable 1.94. Roy, who excelled during three different decades, will forever be viewed as one of hockey’s all-time greats.
