1982-83 Andre Savard Buffalo Sabres Game Worn Jersey
Lot #51

This road blue dureen gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Andre Savard during the 1982-83 NHL season. The Boston Bruins selected Savard with the 6th overall pick in the 1973 NHL Amateur Draft. Savard made his NHL debut in 1973-74 with the Bruins where he played for three seasons that included a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals as a rookie. Savard joined the Buffalo Sabres in 1976-77 and remained with the team for the next 7 years before joining the Quebec Nordiques for the final two years of his 12-year NHL career. Savard scored a career best 31 goals and 74 points in 1980-81 with the Sabres.

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, stitch pops, heavy inner pilling and a handful of team-sewn repairs. The original custom fight strap is sewn just beneath the back player numbers while a nameplate reattachment is also worthy of mention, a commonality with this set. A style beloved by vintage collectors and Sabres fans alike for being among the last dureens ever worn on NHL ice.
