1981-82 Pete Peeters Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #36
This home white mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Pete Peeters during the 1981-82 NHL season. The Philadelphia Flyers selected Peeters in the 8th round of the 1977 NHL Amateur Draft. He began his NHL career with a 5-game stint in Philadelphia in 1978-79. Following the retirement of Bernie Parent, Peeters earned himself a full-time job in 1979-80 and had himself a terrific rookie season. The 1979-80 season saw Peeters and his Flyers go on an improbable 35-game unbeaten streak, shattering an NHL record in the process. The Flyers season eventually ended in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals at the hands of the New York Islanders.

Peeters played in Philadelphia for a total of 4 seasons before joining the Boston Bruins in 1982-83. After joining the Bruins, Peeters put forth the best year of his entire career. Pete appeared in 62 games, a career-high, winning 40 of them against 11 Losses and 9 Ties. Pete posted 8 shutouts and a spectacular 2.36 GAA and led his team to the Eastern Conference Finals where they fell at the hands of the New York Islanders dynasty. Peeters went unbeaten in 31 consecutive games that season, missing the Bruins all-time mark by a single game. For his stellar efforts, Peeters was selected a 1st Team NHL All Star, won the Vezina Trophy as the leagues best goalie and played in the 1983 NHL All Star game. Peeters was also 2nd in the MVP balloting behind some kid named Gretzky. Pete would go on to earn All Star status in his 2nd season with the Bruins, 1983-84 and played in the 1984 NHL All Star game.

Following parts of 4 seasons in Boston, a deal sent Peeters to Washington in 1985-86. He played in the Nations Capital for 4 years and then re-joined the Philadelphia Fyers for two more seasons before announcing his retirement. During his 13-year NHL career, Peeters captured the 1983 Vezina Trophy as the league’s top goaltender, played in 4 NHL All Star games and was named 1st Team NHL All Star. Pete also backstopped Team Canada during the 1984 Canada Cup, winning 3 of his 4 starts. All told this netminder won 246 games, 21 by way of shutout, against only 155 Losses and 51 Ties and was one of the standout goalies of his generation.



The game wear on this Sandow SK goalie cut mesh consists of a number of stick and puck marks and some inner pilling. The original old-school Flyers blue and white striped fight strap remains perfectly sewn to the back player number. Peeters wore this sweater during the last season of his original tenure with the Flyers.
