Lot #42
This road blue air-knit gamer by CCM was first worn by Brett Aitken during the 1990-91 NHL season. It was last worn by Marc LaForge during the 1991-92 NHL preseason.

The Hartford Whalers selected Laforge in the 2nd round of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to beginning his professional career, Laforge set the Kingston Canadians all-time record for PIMS with 686. A year later, while with Sudbury, Laforge received what was essentially a lifetime ban from the OHL for his act of attacking 8 opposing players who were already involved in other fights and then slamming the opposing goalies head into the ice during the same on ice brawl. This feared enforcer enjoyed a 15-year pro career that spanned 1986-87 thru 2000-01. Most of that time was spent in the AHL and IHL. Laforge made his NHL debut with the Hartford Whalers in 1989-90. He also played for the Edmonton Oilers during the 1993-94 season. All told this goon racked up better than 3000 career PIMS as a pro!

The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Aitken in the 3rd round of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft. This Scarborough native made his NHL debut in 1986-87 with the Penguins where he played for parts of two seasons before finishing up his NHL career with the Edmonton Oilers in 1990-91.

The game wear on this 3rd set size 54 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, a fight abused stitch-popped front collar and inner pilling. A nice offering that originally hails from the Peter Pocklington Collection and marks an early jersey from the career of enforcer Marc Laforge and the last of Brett Aitken’s NHL career. This jersey will be accompanied by an Oilers team letter.
