1992-93 Tim Hunter Vancouver Canucks Game Worn Jersey
Lot #13
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Tim Hunter during the 1992-93 NHL season. The Atlanta Flames selected Hunter in the 3rd round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Tim made his NHL debut in 1981-82 with a 2-game call-up before becoming a fixture for the Flames in the latter stages of the 1982-83 season. This enforcer would spend parts of 11 years in Calgary before finishing his 16-year NHL career with stints in Quebec, Vancouver and San Jose. Immediately after his retirement, this inspirational leader joined the NHL coaching ranks, and spent 14 years working behind the NHL benches before becoming the Head Coach of the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors. Hunter ranks as one of the NHL’s all-time great heavyweights. In 815 regular season games this 6’2” 200 pound forward amassed 3146 PIMS! He is one of only 9 players to ever surpass the vaunted 3000 PIMS total. Hunter won his only Stanley Cup in 1988-89 with Calgary. It was during that season that he set his career best single season total of 375 PIMS.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the NHL’s 100-year Stanley Cup anniversary patch. This jersey has been customized for Hunter by the team, with side panels added that extend from the elbow all the way to the middle of the body. The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and fight abuse trauma at the rear neckline which has been torn vertically down to the nameplate and horizontally above the plate and subsequently all repaired by the team. A fantastic well-worn customized patched offering from this legendary enforcer’s first season with the Vancouver Canucks.
