1982-83 J.F. Sauve Rochester Americans Game Worn Jersey Calder Cup
Lot #432
This home white knit gamer by Maska was worn by J.F. Sauve during the 1982-83 Calder Cup winning season. This undrafted 5’6” Center made his NHL debut in 1980-81 with the Buffalo Sabres. Sauve spent three seasons with the Sabres before completing his 7-year NHL career with the Quebec Nordiques. Sauve also starred for the Sabres AHL affiliate in Rochester and led them to the 1983 Calder Cup.

The game wear on this size 50 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, material pulls, heavy inner pilling and in excess of two-dozen team-sewn repairs. Sauve had a career year in 1982-83 with the Amerks. In 73 games he scored 30 goals and added 69 assists for 99 points. His largest contribution came during the playoffs where in 16 games he netted 7 goals and added 21 assists for 28 points as he led his team to the 1983 Calder Cup in what turned out to be Mike Keenan’s final game as Head Coach. A well-worn offering from a career year for this popular fan favorite as he led his team to a Calder Cup Championship.
