1988-89 Brad Berry Winnipeg Jets Game Worn Jersey
Lot #636

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Brad Berry during the 1988-89 NHL season. The Winnipeg Jets selected Berry in the 2nd round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. Berry played 3 seasons of college hockey for the Fighting Sioux at the University of North Dakota before joining the Jets in 1986. Brad spent 5 years with Winnipeg and then spent a season with the Canadian National Team before joining the Minnesota North Stars in 1991-92. Berry played for 2 seasons at the Met and transferred with the franchise to Dallas where he completed his NHL career in 1993-94. Brad completed his playing career with a handful of years in the IHL.

Berry joined the coaching ranks in 2000 and spent 6 years as an assistant at North Dakota before leaving to spend a couple of years behind the Manitoba bench in the AHL and a couple more behind the Columbus Blue Jackets bench in the NHL. In 2012-13, Brad returned to his alma mater and again served as an assistant under Dave Hakstol. Berry took over the reigns at UND in 2015-16 and led the Fighting Sioux to a National Championship in his first season as Head Coach.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the Goals For Kids patch. The sleeves on this gamer have been custom shortened for Berry by the team. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, trauma, washed out bloodstains and areas of heavy pilling both inside and out. A fantastic well-worn vintage example from this long defunct franchise that was used by North Dakota’s Championship winning head coach!
