Description
1986-87 Claude Lemieux Montreal Canadiens Game Worn Jersey
Lot #59

This road red knit gamer by CCM was worn by Claude Lemieux during the 1986-87 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Lemieux in the 2nd round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. In a career that spanned 21 seasons, Claude led three different franchises to 4 Stanley Cup titles and ranks among the all-time elite in playoff scoring. Claude partook in 233 playoff games and scored 158 points while racking up 529 PIMS. Claude also holds the distinction of being one of the leagues most despised players. He was a solid 2-way player that was considered feisty or dirty depending on who you asked. He was awarded with the 1995 Conn Smythe Trophy after leading the New Jersey Devils to their first ever Stanley Cup championship. As a rookie in 1986, Claude was a late season call-up who played the full slate of playoff contests as the Canadiens captured the Stanley Cup. His regular season career totals include 379 goals, 786 points and 1777 PIMS.

The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, stitch pops, pilling at the sleeve cuff, heavy inner pilling and more than a couple of handfuls of team-sewn repairs including a sew job to the rear upper collar. Lemieux wore this sweater during his first full NHL season as the Canadiens were skating as defending Stanley Cup Champions. Claude lit the lamp 27 times and amassed 156 PIMS over the course of 76 regular season games. As playoff time rolled around, Lemieux added another 13 points and 41 PIMS in 17 games as the Canadiens eventually fell to the Flyers in the Wales Conference Finals, falling just short in defense of their Stanley Cup title. A well-worn early career example worn by this four-time Stanley Cup Champion and agitator extraordinaire.
