1986-87 Lucien DeBlois New York Rangers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #60

This home white mesh gamer by Cosby was game worn by Lucien DeBlois during the 1986-87 NHL season. This jersey’s tagging trace its origins back to 1979. The New York Rangers selected DeBlois 8th overall in the 1977 NHL Amateur Draft. He broke into the NHL that same year with the Broadway Blueshirts, lighting the lamp 22 times as a rookie. The following season, DeBlois and the Rangers made an unlikely trek to the Stanley Cup Finals where they fell to the Montreal Canadiens dynasty. After only 6 games into 1979-80, his 3rd season in the league, the Rangers dealt DeBlois to the Colorado Rockies in a blockbuster deal to obtain Barry Beck. Lucien spent 2 years with the Rockies, 3 more in Winnipeg and then joined the Montreal Canadiens where, in his 2nd and final year with the club, he won the 1986 Stanley Cup. DeBlois rejoined the Rangers in 1986-87 and played there for 3 more years before finishing his 15-year NHL career with stints in Quebec, Toronto and Winnipeg. DeBlois, a decorated star in juniors, scored 249 career NHL goals.


Sewn into the collar of this gamer are the manufacturers, wash, size and year tagging. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, fine inner pilling and approximately 20 team-sewn repairs. The original late 1970’s style fight strap was replaced with a modern version for DeBlois upon his return to the team in 1986. The original name on back was also removed by the Rangers and replaced with Lucien’s surname. A well-worn vintage New York Rangers gamer that began its life in 1979 and came back into action for DeBlois’ return to Broadway in 1986-87.
