1993 Grant Fuhr Buffalo Sabres Practice Worn Jersey
Lot #81

This white knit practice jersey by CCM was worn by Grant Fuhr circa the 1992-93 or 1993-94 NHL season. The Edmonton Oilers selected Fuhr with the 8th overall pick in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft, further cementing their path to a dynasty. Fuhr spent the first 10 years of his 19-year NHL career with the Edmonton Oilers. During that time he won 5 Stanley Cups and numerous other accolades.

Fuhr’s career highlights include a Vezina Trophy, a Jennings Trophy, one 1st and one 2nd Team NHL All Star selection and 6 NHL All Star Game appearances. On the international stage Fuhr represented Team NHL in Rendezvous ‘87 and Team Canada in two Canada Cup’s. His stellar work in the 1987 Canada Cup is still talked about to this day, having played in all 9 games and losing just once. In his final NHL season, Fuhr won his 400th game, becoming only the 6th goalie in NHL history to accomplish that feat.

Grant was one of the most durable goalies in the history of the sport. He holds numerous goaltending records that speak to that fact including most games played in a single season with 79 and most consecutive games played with 76. His record breaking undefeated streak of 23 consecutive games in 1982 still stands to this day as does his 14 assists in 1984. On October 6, 2001, the Edmonton Oilers paid homage to their great goalie by retiring his number 31 to the rafters where it hangs alongside the likes of Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, Coffey and Anderson. After his lengthy tenure with the Oilers, Fuhr backstopped the Leafs, Sabres, Kings, Blues and Flames en route to 403 Wins and 25 shutouts in a standout Hall of Fame career.

This goalie cut practice jersey features nice use that includes stick and puck marks, goal post paint transfer, a well-salted fight strap and inner pilling. There is just a bit of loss to the back player numbers as seen in the photos above. A nice example from an era that saw Fuhr share the pipes with fellow Hall of Fame goalie Dominik Hasek in Buffalo.
