1983 Rick Wamsley Montreal Canadiens Game Worn Jersey
Lot #58
This road red knit gamer by Maska was worn by Rick Wamsley during the 1983 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens, sensing that Ken Dryden’s career was coming to an end, selected Wamsley in the 3rd round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Rick cracked the Canadiens lineup in 1980-81 and spent the first 4 seasons of his 13-year NHL career with Montreal. Wamsley would go on to represent the St. Louis Blues for parts of 4 seasons, the Calgary Flames for a handful more and then wrapped up his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs during the early 1990’s. During Wamsley’s first full season with Les Habitants he teamed up with Denis Herron to capture the 1982 William M. Jennings Trophy. Rick posted 204 Wins and 46 Ties against only 131 Losses during his 407 NHL career games. His career best 27 Wins came with Montreal in 1982-83. Wamsley represented Team Canada in the 1983 and 1985 World Championships.

The game wear on this vintage goalie sweater consists of stick and puck marks, some pulls, pilling and a couple of small un-repaired holes. The Maska tag remains sewn perfectly into the collar while the double ribbon style fight strap has been shortened down in size. Goalie sweaters from the Montreal Canadiens Maska years are held in high esteem among collectors and have been notoriously tough to find, Good Luck!
