1970-72 John Schella & Darryl Sly Vancouver Canucks Game Worn Jersey
Lot #49

This home white dureen gamer by General Athletic was worn by John Schella and or Darryl Sly during the 1970-71 and or 1971-72 NHL seasons. Schella spent two seasons in the NHL. He made his NHL debut with the expansion Vancouver Canucks in 1970-71, playing in 38 games and then represented the team again in 1971-72, playing in 77 games. In 1972-73 he bolted to the WHA’s Houston Aeros where he played until the team folded following the 1977-78 season.

Darryl Sly enjoyed a lengthy professional career and made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1965-66. Sly spent a couple of years with the Leafs, played for the Minnesota North Stars in 1969-70 and then completed his NHL career with the expansion Vancouver Canucks in 1970-71.

Larry Cahan was a member of the Vancouver Canucks back in their WHL days in the 1960’s. Cahan enjoyed a lengthy NHL career that began in 1954-55 with the Maple Leafs. He would also represent the Rangers, Seals and Kings over the course of 13 NHL seasons. Cahan also spent a couple of years in the WHA with the Chicago Cougars. This vintage Vancouver gamer was recycled to the Canucks Alumni team where Cahan wore it.

Sewn into the hem of this gamer is the General Athletic manufacturers tag. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, inner pilling, a vented collar with team-sewn repair work emanating down towards the crest and a couple of additional team-sewn repairs. A beautiful piece of Vancouver Canucks game worn history!
