1988 Guy Gosselin Team USA Olympics Game Worn Jersey
Lot #45

This white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Guy Gosselin during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. The Winnipeg Jets selected Gosselin in the 8th round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Gosselin played his college hockey at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, where he led the Bulldogs to back-to-back WCHA Championships and back-to-back Frozen Four appearances. This Rochester, MN native went on to play for the US National Team in 1987-88 before competing for Team USA during the 1988 Olympic Games. Following the Olympics, Gosselin joined the Winnipeg Jets where he played briefly before spending the next couple of years with the team’s AHL franchise in Moncton. Guy later played in Sweden for a couple of seasons before making a comeback with the IHL’s Kansas City Blades.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the chain-stitched “88”. Sewn to the left breast is the sponsorship patch. Gosselin played in Team USA’s 6 Olympic Games, assisting on 3 goals. Light but obvious game wear exists on this size 52 sweater. Since retiring, Gosselin has taken an active role with Team USA, where in 2018 he was the Head Coach for the Paralympic Sled Hockey Team and led them to a Gold Medal in PyeongChang, Korea.
