GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Michel Goulet Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys, game used sticks, game worn equipment and memorabilia come directly from the personal collection of Hockey Hall of Famer, Michel Goulet. Mr. Goulet personally collected and preserved these items over the course of his legendary NHL career. A signed letter from Mr. Goulet will accompany your purchase.

This white knit gamer by Maska and Kappa was worn by Michel Goulet during the 1983 NHL All Star Game on Long Island, Goulet’s first NHL All Star Game appearance. The Quebec Nordiques selected Goulet in the 1st round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. This Quebec native made his professional debut in 1978-79 with the WHA’s Birmingham Bulls. When NHL expansion ensued the following year, Goulet made his NHL debut in 1979-80 with the Quebec Nordiques.

Goulet was among the finest Left Wingers of his generation, and in NHL history for that matter. He netted a spectacular 548 goals and 1152 points during a 15-year NHL career. Michel’s goal totals from the period of 1981-82 thru 1987-88 is an impressive read; 42, 57, 56, 55, 53, 49 and 48 respectively. He was a five-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star who also played in five NHL All Star Games. Goulet represented Team Canada during the World Championships, the 1984 and 1987 Canada Cup and also represented Team NHL during Rendezvous ’87. Following 11 seasons with the Nordiques, Goulet joined the Chicago Blackhawks and soon after led them on an epic run to the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals. Merely two seasons later, Michel suffered a vicious head injury during the latter stages of the 1993-94 season, putting a sudden end to his Hall of Fame career.

Sewn to the rear hem of this gamer is the rarely seen Kappa logo. The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, plenty of board paint transfer from the Nassau Coliseum and inner pilling, all the game wear that you could hope for from an era when one jersey per game was still the standard. Also worthy of mention is the front lettering, which has faded due to display. Gamers from the 1983 NHL All Star Game have been rather difficult to come by over the years with merely a handful or so ever appearing at Major Auction. This well-worn fresh to the hobby example was worn by the Hall of Famer during his first NHL All Star Game and comes directly from the personal collection of Michel Goulet and will be accompanied by his signed LOA, choice!
