1992-93 Jay Bertsch Lethbridge Hurricanes Game Worn Jersey – Rookie - “75-year Memorial Cup”
Lot #277

This road red air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Jay Bertsch during the 1992-93 WHL season, his rookie season. The Quebec Nordiques selected Bertsch in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. After failing to reach terms, Jay was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. This native of Lethbridge, Alberta spent his first one and a half seasons of juniors with the Hurricanes before finishing up his 5-year junior career with the Spokane Chiefs. Bertsch was a noted tough guy who played the role of enforcer for Spokane. His career single season best penalty minutes total came in 1995-96 with the Chiefs when he compiled 293 PIMS in 69 games played.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the Memorial Cup 75-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, some trauma to the fight strap, fine inner pilling and in excess of a dozen team-sewn repairs. A well-worn patched gamer from this enforcers first year of Junior Hockey.
