1978-79 Mike Fidler & 1980-81 Ken Solheim Minnesota North Stars Game Worn Jersey
Lot #145

This road green mesh gamer by Steichens was first worn by Mike Fidler during the 1978-79 NHL season. The jersey was later recycled to Ken Solheim during the 1980-81 season, his rookie year. The California Seals selected Fidler in the 3rd round of the 1976 NHL Amateur Draft. After playing his college hockey at Boston University, this Everett, MA native began his NHL career with the Cleveland Barons in 1976-77. Fidler joined the North Stars in 1978-79 and remained with the club into the 1980-81 season when he traded to the Hartford Whalers for Gordie Roberts. Mike played for a couple of seasons in Hartford and spent a final year with the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Chicago Blackhawks selected Solheim in the 2nd round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. Ken played for the Blackhawks for 5 games prior to coming over to Minnesota later that same season. Solheim was part of that beloved North Stars club who made a run all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1981 before falling to the New York Islanders dynasty. Solheim’s NHL career spanned 5 seasons. He played for Chicago, Minnesota, Detroit and Edmonton.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the manufacturers, wash, size and year tagging. The game wear on this size 52 sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and a half dozen team-sewn repairs including a 5-inch long sew job on the verso. A nice old school North Stars gamer.
