1972-73 Jacques Lemaire Montreal Canadiens Prince of Wales Championship Trophy - Jacques Lemaire Letter
Lot #494
This all-original Montreal Canadiens Prince of Wales trophy was given to Hall of Famer Jacques Lemaire following the Canadiens Eastern Division victory in 1972-73. The trophy measures 13 inches high. The top is made of plated silver and the base is wood. The inscription on one side reads "NHL Prince of Wales Trophy Jacques Lemaire", the other side reads "N.H.L. Champions 1972-73 Club De Hockey Canadien". The Prince of Wales trophy was awarded by the NHL to the players and staff of the Eastern Conference playoff champions. The Canadiens would go on to defeat the Chicago Blackhawks in the Finals to take the Stanley Cup.



Lemaire began his NHL career with Les Habitants in 1967-68 and spent his entire 12-year NHL career in Montreal. In 853 career games, lemaire netted 366 goals and 835 points on his way to the Hall of Fame. The 1972-73 season was a career best for Lemaire who lit the lamp 44 times and totaled 95 points. Lemaire centered the Hall of Fame line of himself with Steve Shutt on the left and Guy Lafleur on the right, forming one of hockey’s deadliest combinations. Jacques was a 2-time NHL All Star who won a remarkable 8 Stanley Cups in 12 seasons! He was most deservingly inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1984.



The trophy has a dent on the rear lip, one leaf broken away on the top, is loose from the base and has some areas that are tarnished. It will be accompanied by a Jacques Lemaire letter.
