1991-93 Brian Bellows Montreal Canadiens Game Worn Jersey – “1993 NHL All Star Game” - 40-Goal Season - Stanley Cup Season - Retired Number
Lot #65

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Brian Bellows during the 1992-93 NHL season. The Minnesota North Stars made Bellows the 2nd overall pick in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Brian began his career in 1982-83 and called Minnesota home for his first 10 seasons. During that time, Brian recorded a 55-goal season, two more 40-goal years, was a 2nd Team NHL All Star, played in 3 NHL All Star games and the 1991 Stanley Cup Finals. The 1992-93 season saw Bellows join the Montreal Canadiens and it was in large part to his 40-goal outburst that helped the Canadiens to the Stanley Cup, earning Brian his first and only Stanley Cup ring. Bellows would spend 3 seasons in Montreal and then did stints in Tampa Bay, Anaheim and Washington before retiring in 1999. His career totals of 485 goals and 1022 points leave him among the elite scorers of his generation.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Montreal Forum 44th NHL All Star Game patch. Sewn beneath is the NHL’s 75-year Anniversary patch, which is covered by a large swatch of knit material. The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired holes and fine inner pilling. Brian became the first player to wear Bob Gainey’s #23 since the Hall of Famer retired in 1989. Gainey’s #23 would later be retired by Montreal. Bellows wore this All Star patched sweater during his first season with the Canadiens as he struck for 40 goals and 88 points en route to capturing the first and only Stanley Cup Championship of his career. Terrific double patched example hailing from a Stanley Cup winning season and worn during one of the better seasons of this All Star’s illustrious career.
