Description
1988-89 Gaetan Duchesne Quebec Nordiques Game Worn Jersey
Lot #60
This road blue knit gamer by CCM was worn by Gaetan Duchesne during the 1988-89 NHL season. The Washington Capitals selected Duchesne in the 8th round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. Duchesne began his NHL career with the Capitals in 1981-82. He remained with the Caps for 6 years before joining Quebec for 2 seasons in the late 1980’s. Gaetan then joined the North Stars where he spent the next 4 seasons before wrapping up his career with short stays in San Jose and Florida. Gaetan took one trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, that with the North Stars in 1990-91, where they fell to the Lemieux led Pittsburgh Penguins. Sadly, Duchesne died of a heart attack at the age of 44 just a handful of years ago.

The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, plenty of board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and fine inner pilling. As has happened to many of these vintage screened on Nordiques gamers, there is quite a bit of cracking to the numbers and fleur di lis.
