This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Pierre Turgeon during the 1995-96 NHL season. This 19-year veteran was the 1st overall pick by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1987 NHL entry draft. He played for 5 seasons in Buffalo before being dealt to the New York Islanders in a deal for Hall of Famer Pat LaFontaine. Pierre spent 4 years on the Island before moving about to Montreal, where he would serve as Captain, St. Louis, Dallas and Colorado. In nearly 1300 games played, Pierre tabbed 515 goals and 1327 points. He won the 1992-93 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy awarded to the player who best exhibited sportsmanship and high ability. Having achieved the 500-goal plateau and averaging better than a point per game during his career, will undoubtedly land Pierre in the Hall of Fame in the near future.
The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, swipes of that familiar board paint transfer from the old Montreal Forum and fine inner pilling. Turgeon netted 38 goals and added 58 assists for a 96-point outburst and went +19 while wearing this jersey at the Forum during the 1995-96 season. This jersey will be accompanied by a Canadiens team letter.
