1990-91 Wendel Young Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey - "41st NHL All Star Game" - Stanley Cup Season
Lot #353
This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Wendel Young during the 1990-91 Stanley Cup winning season. The Vancouver Canucks drafted Young in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. He began his NHL career in 1985-86 with the Canucks and later played for the Flyers, Penguins and Lightning. Wendel was part of the Pittsburgh Penguins back-to-back Stanley Cup winning squads in the early 1990’s, serving as Tom Barrasso’s backup. Following his NHL days, Young guarded the pipes for the IHL’s Chicago Wolves for 7 years and later became the team’s assistant coach. Young was the recipient of the AHL’s Jack A Butterfield Trophy as well as the Baz Bastein Award. He also won the IHL’s 2000-01 Man of the Year Award.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the 41st annual NHL All Star game patch. These All Star patched gamers were worn for the entire 1989-90 season, and then again during the early part of the 1990-91 Stanley Cup winning season, until a request by the Chicago Blackhawks had the NHL office intervene and demand the Pens stop wearing their All Star patched gamers. The game wear on this 1st set sweater is on the lighter side with some stick and puck marks, a well salted and rusted fight strap and heavy areas of pilling. A nice All Star patched gamer, worn during the Penguins first Stanley Cup winning season, that should capture the interest of both goalie and Penguins collectors alike.
