Description
1982-83 Mario Lessard Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey
Lot #52
This home gold knit gamer by Maska was worn by Mario Lessard during the 1982-83 NHL season. The Los Angeles Kings selected Lessard in the 9th round of the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. He began his NHL career with the Kings in 1978-79 and remained with the franchise that drafted him throughout his entire NHL career, retiring after the 1983-84 season. Lessard assumed the role of starting goalie in LA as a rookie, following the departure of Kings legend Rogie Vachon. He held the starting role for 4 years, playing in 49, 50, 64 and 52 games respectively prior to ceding the role himself.

This vintage gamer is completely fresh to the hobby, having been purchased by our consignor directly from the LA Kings in the summer of 1983, and remaining in his private collection since that day. This sweater shows typical goalie wear with stick and puck marks and inner pilling. Also worthy of mention is the fight strap, which was cut out by the Kings. A nice, fresh to the hobby, 30+-year-old goalie gamer from the long defunct purple and gold era.
