This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Denis Savard during the 1991-92 and 1992-93 Stanley Cup winning season. The Chicago Blackhawks selected Savard with the 3rd overall pick in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. This Pointe Gatineau native made his NHL debut in 1980-81 with the Blackhawks at just 19 years of age. Savard carved out his legend with Chicago where he showcased his immense talent during 13 of his 17 NHL seasons. Denis spent his first 10 seasons in Chicago before playing for three years in Montreal where, in 1993, he won his only Stanley Cup. Savard next spent parts of two seasons with the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning before returning home to Chicago where he finished his career following two final seasons with the Blackhawks. Savard, who was known for his patented “spin-o-rama” move, scored 473 goals and added 865 assists for 1338 points to go along with 1336 PIMS in 1196 games played. His playoff acumen was no less impressive, lighting the lamp 66 times and adding 109 helpers for 175 playoff points to go along with 256 PIMS in 169 games played. Denis is the third highest scorer in Chicago Blackhawks history, trailing only Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita. Savard, a perennial top 10 NHL scorer, was named 2nd team NHL All Star in 1982-83 and played in 7 NHL All Star Games. He was elected to the NHL Hall of Fame with the class of 2000 in his first year of eligibility.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”, which lies above the outline of the Captain’s “C”. Sewn to the right breast is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch, which is covered by the 1993 NHL All Star Game patch. The game wear on this size 48 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, plenty of board paint transfer from the Montreal Forum, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. Savard wore this sweater over the course of two seasons, including the Canadiens 1992-93 Stanley Cup winning campaign when he served as Team Captain in Guy Carbonneau’s absence. A well-worn multi-patched fresh to the hobby offering, complete with the coveted letter of honor and coming directly from the personal collection of former Montreal Canadiens assistant trainer John Shipman and is accompanied by his signed LOA, choice!
