Description
1986-87 Doug Wickenheiser St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey - Honored Number
Lot #23

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Doug Wickenheiser during the 1986-87 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Wickenheiser with the 1st overall pick in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. Wickenheiser made his NHL debut with the Habs in 1980-81 and spent parts of 4 seasons with the club before joining the St. Louis Blues midway through the 1983-84 campaign.



Doug spent 4 years with the Blues and scored the most famous goal in franchise history when he notched the overtime winner in Game 6 of the 1986 Conference Finals to force a 7th Game for the right to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. Doug went on to play briefly for the Canucks, Rangers and Capitals before retiring. Tragically, Wick lost his life after a battle with Cancer at just 37-years of age in 1999. His player #14 hangs from the rafters in St. Louis alongside the other legendary Blues.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the born on tagging that reads “86-07”. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, washed out blood and sweat stains and inner pilling. This fresh to the block gamer was worn by this beloved figure during his last season in St. Louis, the year after scoring the most famous goal in franchise history.
