1981-82 Steve Gatzos Erie Blades Game Worn Jersey
Lot #214

This home white mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Steve Gatzos during the 1981-82 AHL season, his rookie year. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Gatzos in the 2nd round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. Following an electrifying junior career with the Soo Greyhounds this Toronto native made his NHL debut in 1981-82 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Gatzos spent his entire four-year NHL career with the Pens and also played in Europe as well as the AHL, ECHL and IHL.

The game wear on this size XL sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. Sewn to the inside just beneath the back player number is a custom loop and skate lace style fight strap. This one-year style represents the Blades only season as the Pittsburgh Penguins AHL affiliate. Gatzos scored 18 goals and added 19 assists for 37 points and 67 PIMS in his 54 games as a rookie with Erie while wearing this sweater on home ice. A nice one-year style worn by this former Penguins winger.
