This white Titan ASD goalie stick was game used by Vezina trophy winner Jim Carey while playing for the Washington Capitals. Carey was a 2nd round draft choice in 1992 by the Washington Capitals. Following his time with the University of Wisconsin, “Ace” moved onto the American Hockey League’s Portland Pirates. The Pirates were the Capitals AHL affiliate and Carey dominated in the nets in his first AHL season, 1994-95. His play was so outstanding that the Washington Capitals called him up midway through the 1994-95 campaign. Despite being pulled away from the Pirates, Jim was still honored with the Baz Bastein Memorial Award, which is given to the AHL’s best goaltender and the Dudley Red Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL’s Rookie of the Year.
In 1995-96 Carey appeared in 71 games for the Capitals and captured the NHL’s Vezina Trophy as the league’s best goaltender as well as being a first team NHL All Star. He still holds the Capitals records for lowest career GAA (2.37), lowest GAA in a season (2.13) and most shutouts in a season (9).
This white Titan ASD goalie stick has the player name and number “J. Carey 29” stamped on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt and the blade. It is uncracked and in beautiful condition. There is a nice autograph in Jim’s own hand on the paddle.
