1983-84 Dave Andreychuk Buffalo Sabres Game Worn Jersey - 2nd NHL Season - Photo Match
Lot #17
This road blue knit gamer by Maska was worn by Dave Andreychuk during the 1983-84 NHL season, his sophomore season. The Buffalo Sabres selected Andreychuk in the 1st round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. He began his NHL career with Buffalo in 1982-83. In a career that spanned an impressive 23 seasons, Andreychuk played in Buffalo for 11 years before moving onto Toronto in 1993. After parts of 4 seasons with the Leafs, Dave joined the Devils for 4 years and scored his 500th Goal in New Jersey. Other stops included Boston, Colorado, another year in Buffalo and a final 4 seasons in Tampa Bay, where Dave captured the trophy that had eluded him to that point, the Stanley Cup. Andreychuk is currently ranked 14th on the NHL’s all-time goal scoring list with 640. His 1338 career points also place him amongst the elite scorers of all-time. A member of the vaunted 50-goal club, Dave netted a career best 53 for Toronto in 1993-94. Longevity is a respected term among NHLers and Andreychuk fits the definition having finished his career with 1639 games played, the 4th highest total in league history. After serving as team Captain and hoisting the Cup in Tampa Bay, Dave called it quits on what was a most impressive career. A spot in the Hall of Fame no doubt awaits this NHL All Star.

The game wear on this size 48 sweater is solid and consists of a good many stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops and heavy inner pilling. The original fight strap remains sewn to the inside back player numbers and features a custom wrap. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Andreychuk wearing this exact jersey during the 1983-84 season. This was Andreychuk’s 2nd year in the league and his first full NHL season. This future Hall of Famer played in 78 games and lit the lamp 38 times while adding 42 assists for an impressive 80 points and a +20, as he officially emerged into the spotlight while wearing this sweater during road contests. A tremendous well-worn photo matched offering from Andreychuk’s sophomore season, choice!
