1986-87 Kirk McLean Maine Mariners Game Worn Jersey Kirk McLean Letter
Lot #544

This vintage minor league gamer originated from the personal collection of 2-time NHL All Star Goalie, Kirk McLean. A signed letter by Mr. McLean will accompany your purchase.

This home white mesh gamer by Eagle was worn by Kirk McLean during the 1986-87 AHL season. The New Jersey Devils selected McLean in the 6th round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. McLean made his NHL debut with the Devils in 1985-86 after finishing up his season with the Oshawa Generals. The following year he spent 45 games in goal for the Maine Mariners and another 4 games with the New Jersey Devils. In September of 1987, New Jersey used McLean to acquire Patrik Sundstrom from the Vancouver Canucks. McLean became the man between the pipes for the Vancouver Canucks for the next 11 seasons before finishing up his career with stops in Carolina, Florida and New York’s MSG. While with Vancouver, McLean played in a couple of NHL All Star Games, was named 2nd Team NHL All Star in 1991-92 leading the NHL in Wins with 38 that season and then he backstopped the Canucks to Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals. McLean is Vancouver’s all-time leader in many categories including 211 Wins, 34 Playoff Wins and 6 Playoff Shutouts in addition to numerous single season marks.

The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and puck marks, trauma, pulls and bunching of the black arm striping, sweat stains, a fight strap showing signs of salt and rust along with inner pilling and some team-sewn repairs on the upper verso as a result of a nameplate change. This sweater was previously worn by NHL goalie Sam St. Laurent during the 1985-86 AHL season. A fantastic minor league offering that marked the only year McLean was between the pipes as a professional outside of the NHL. This terrific example will be accompanied by a Kirk McLean signed LOA that will accompany your purchase.
