1984-85 Neal Broten Minnesota North Stars Practice Worn Jersey - Miracle On Ice Alum
Lot #109
This black knit practice jersey by CCM was worn by Neal Broten during the 1984-85 NHL season. The Minnesota North Stars selected Broten in the 3rd round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Broten, a native of Roseau, MN was a key member of the celebrated 1980 US Olympic Gold Medal winning ‘Do you believe in Miracles’ squad. After skating for the University of Minnesota and winning the Hobey Baker Award, Neal joined his hometown Minnesota North Stars and, as a rookie, played in his first of three Stanley Cup Finals. Neal hails as the greatest Minnesota born player in NHL history and is a member of the US Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1985-86, Broten became the first American born player to score 100 points in a season with a 105 point effort.



In 1994-95, after spending 15 seasons with the Minnesota/Dallas franchise, Broten joined the New Jersey Devils and provided that missing veteran leadership as they went onto win their first ever Stanley Cup title. Neal spent parts of 3 seasons in New Jersey, a partial year with the Kings and then 20 games with the Stars where he scored 8 goals and 15 points in his final 20 NHL games with his original franchise. A year after retiring, the Dallas Stars honored Broten by retiring his player number 7. This iconic Gold Medal winner was a two-time NHL All Star and was the recipient of the 1998 Lester Patrick Trophy.



Sewn into the collar of this jersey is the born on tag that reads “84-07”. This size 50 sweater shows excellent use that consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, pulls, heavy inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. Still affixed to the inside is the original fight strap. A fine offering that was worn by this Minnesota hockey legend and US Hockey Hall of Famer.
