1984-85 Ken Yaremchuk & 1986-87 Mark LaVarre Chicago Blackhawks Game Worn Jersey
Lot #85

This road red knit gamer by CCM and Gunzo’s was worn by Ken Yaremchuk during the 1984-85 NHL season. The Chicago Blackhawks selected Yaremchuk in the 1st round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. This Edmonton, Alberta native made his NHL debut with the Chicago Blackhawks in 1983-84. Following 3 seasons in Chicago, Yaremchuk played for the Toronto Maple Leafs for 3 more seasons. In 1989, Yaremchuk headed to Europe, playing in Italy and primarily Switzerland where he spent the next decade as one of the continent’s biggest stars. Ken also played with the Canadian National Team during several seasons and represented his country in the 1988 Olympics.

Following Yaremchuk’s departure from Chicago, Mark LaVarre took over his player #15 and wore this jersey during the 1986-87 pre-season. The Chicago Blackhawks selected LaVarre in the 6th round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. This Evanston, IL native made his NHL debut with the hometown Hawks in 1985-86 and spent 3 seasons wearing the Chief Indian Head before playing a final year in Europe.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the born on date “84-07”. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, material pulls, stitch pops, washed out bloodstains, heavy inner pilling and in excess of two-dozen team-sewn repairs! Also worthy of mention is a black sharpie notation “85-86” that can be found on the inside of the CCM hem logo. The Hawks recycled this set of sweaters to the 1985-86 preseason, where Yaremchuk wore it once more. After Yaremchuk left the Hawks following the 1985-86 season, this jersey was recycled to Mark LaVarre for use during the 1986-87 pre-season. A well-worn fresh to the hobby example donned by a pair of 1980’s Gunzo’s era Blackawks.
