1986-89 Patrick Roy Montreal Canadiens Game Worn Jersey
Lot #12
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Patrick Roy during the 1986-87, 1987-88 or 1988-89 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Roy in the 3rd round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. There are many who consider Roy to be the greatest goaltender in the history of the sport. He retired as the NHL’s all-time winningest goalie with 551 wins, a longstanding record that was held by the legendary Terry Sawchuk and has since been surpassed by Martin Brodeur. Roy is the current record holder with an amazing 151 playoff Wins, more than 50 victories better than Martin Brodeur who resides in 2nd place. To go along with his 4 Stanley Cup rings, he carries 3 Conn Smythe Trophies as most valuable player of the playoffs. The first of those playoff MVP’s came as a rookie in 1986 when Roy led the upstart Canadiens back to Stanley Cup glory. Also to his credit are 3 Vezina Trophies and 5 Jennings Trophies, noting his excellence between the pipes. Patrick was 6 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star while also appearing in double-digit NHL All Star games.



Following parts of 13 seasons tending goal and 2 Stanley Cups for the Montreal Canadiens, Roy was dealt to the expansion Colorado Avalanche where he continued his dominance and led his brethren to another pair of Stanley Cup titles. All told Patrick guarded the pipes over 19 NHL seasons. He went out while he was still one of the games best, posting 30+ Wins and 60+ games in each of his last 11 non-strike shortened seasons. His GAA in his final season was 2.18 while the season prior he posted a career best 1.94. Roy, who excelled during three different decades, will forever be viewed as one of hockey’s all-time greats.



The game wear on this goalie cut sweater is solid and consists of stick and puck marks, goal post paint transfer, pulls, fine inner pilling and a salted fight strap. This regal example has sat in private hands as part of a couple of prestigious collections for many years and is now making its way to auction for the very first time. Roy was at the height of his powers while wearing this sweater during his 2nd, 3rd or 4th NHL season. He snagged the Jennings Trophy 3 consecutive times dating 1987-89. Patrick also captured his first Vezina Trophy for his outstanding efforts during the 1988-89 season while leading Montreal to the Stanley Cup Finals later that spring for the 2nd time in his budding 4-year career. Roy was named 2nd Team NHL All Star in 1987-88 and followed that up with a 1st Team NHL All Star selection in 1988-89. This outstanding vintage example was worn by one of hockey’s all-time greats during the very early part of his legendary Hall of Fame career and would become an instant cornerstone item in any serious goalie or Hall of Fame collection, choice!
