1991-92 Rick Tocchet Penguins Game Jersey - "Badger Bob" - "25-year Anniversary"
Lot #158

This road black knit jersey by CCM was issued for Rick Tocchet’s use during the 1991-92 NHL season. Tocchet began his NHL career with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1984-85 and as a rookie was treated to a Stanley Cup Finals run where the Flyers fell to the Edmonton Oilers. Two seasons later, Rick would again join his Flyers teammates in another incredible Stanley Cup Finals run that pushed Wayne Gretzky’s Edmonton Oilers to a game 7. Tocchet’s ride in Philadelphia lasted into the 1991-92 season, when he was dealt for Mark Recchi.

In his first season in Pittsburgh, Tocchet won his only Stanley Cup trophy as he teamed on a line with Mario Lemieux. Rick’s career lasted 18 seasons that included an 8-year run with the Flyers to begin it and another 3-year run with the same team to complete it. In the middle were notable stays in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Washington, Boston and Phoenix.

During his career, Tocchet was twice a 40+ goal scorer. His career total of 440 goals and 952 points may surprise some, whereas his 2970 career PIMS should surprise nobody. Tocchet didn’t let up come playoff time either, as evidenced by his 471 playoff PIMS in 145 playoff games. Tocchet was also a 4-time participant in the NHL All Star game.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this size 54 jersey is the Badger Bob patch, commemorating the death of the Pens fallen leader Badger Bob Johnson. Sewn to the right shoulder is the Penguins 25-year anniversary patch. Sewn to the right breast is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch. Fantastic 3-patched example of one of the difference makers during the Penguins 2nd Stanley Cup winning season.
