1983-84 Mark Napier Minnesota North Stars Game Worn Jersey
Lot #53

This road green mesh gamer by Pedersons was worn by Mark Napier during the 1983-84 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Napier in the 1st round of the 1977 NHL Amateur Draft. This Toronto native made his professional debut in the WHA with the Toronto Toros in 1975-76. He would play for the Toros and the Birmingham Bulls for 3 seasons, lighting up the WHA score sheets and earning 2 All Star appearances. Napier won the Lou Kaplan Trophy as the WHA’s Rookie of the Year in 1975-76 thanks to his 43-goal effort. The following season he lit the lamp a resounding 60 times; good for 3rd overall in league wide goal scoring! In 237 WHA games, Napier scored 136 goals and 254 points.

Napier made his NHL debut with the Montreal Canadiens in 1978-79 and won a Stanley Cup later that spring. He would spend parts of 6 seasons with Les Habitants before joining the Minnesota North Stars via trade in October 1983. Following parts of 2 years in Minnesota, Napier joined the Edmonton Oilers midway through the 1984-85 season and again won Lord Stanley’s Cup in his first year with his new team. Following 3 years in Edmonton, Napier wrapped up his NHL career spending parts of 3 seasons with the Buffalo Sabres. Although his NHL career wasn’t as dynamic as his WHA days, Napier did put forth a couple of 40 goal seasons during his time with Montreal.

The game wear on this vintage green and gold is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, inner pilling and team-sewn reinforcement to the front and rear collar. Affixed to the inner verso is the original loop style fight strap. A beautiful vintage offering from Napier’s first season in representation of the Minnesota North Stars.
