Description
1987-88 Todd Ewen St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey "8 Plager"
Lot #556

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Todd Ewen during the 1987-88 NHL season. Originally a draft choice of the Edmonton Oilers, Ewen began his NHL career with the St. Louis Blues in 1986-87. He remained in St. Louis for 3+ seasons, before a deal sent him to the Montreal Canadiens. Todd played in Montreal for 4 seasons and then spent 3 more in Anaheim and a final year in San Jose. This enforcer is considered among the toughest of his generation. He played in 518 games and racked up 1911 PIMS! He set a single-season career high with 285 PIMS, in a mere 53 games, while playing for Anaheim in 1995-96.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the Barclay Plager “8” patch, to commemorate the passing of a St. Louis Blues legend. Ewen racked up 227 PIMS in 64 games during his sophomore season. The game wear on this sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, washed out bloodstains, a well-salted fight strap, stitch pops at the front of the collar and inner pilling. Worthy of mention is a nameplate change. Shown above, for your enjoyment, are some video highlights of Ewen letting fly in front of the hometown St. Louis fans.
