This road blue mesh gamer by Harval was worn by Lyle Moffat during the 1978-79 WHA Avco Cup winning season, the last in WHA history. After spending two seasons at Michigan Tech University, Moffat began his NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1972-73. After a couple of seasons with the Leafs, Moffat made his WHA debut in 1975-76 with the Cleveland Crusaders. After 33 games with the Crusaders, Moffat was traded to the Winnipeg Jets where he would play for the remainder of his WHA career. During his three and a half seasons with the Jets, Moffat went to the Avco Cup Finals four times and walked away with three Avco Cup Championships! When the league collapsed the Jets merged into the NHL, Moffat went with, spending one final season with the Jets in the NHL.

The game wear on this size L sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and trauma, stitch popping, fine inner pilling and team-sewn repair work. Affixed to the inside back player number is a customized skate lace fight strap. Worn by this three-time Avco Cup Champion during the WHA’s final season as Moffat and the Winnipeg Jets went out in style winning their 3rd Championship in a four-year stretch.
