1994-95 Chris Pronger Hartford Whalers Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #10

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Chris Pronger during the 1994-95 NHL season. Pronger’s Hall of Fame career began in 1993 when Hartford made him the 2nd overall selection in the NHL Entry Draft that year. Chris spent 2 seasons on the Whalers blueline before a blockbuster deal sent him to St. Louis in exchange for Brendan Shanahan. Chris spent 9 seasons honing his craft in St. Louis before joining Edmonton for a year. He next spent 3 seasons with Anaheim and then completed his career delivering bone-crunching hits for the Philadelphia Flyers before being forced into premature retirement due to post concussion syndrome.

Pronger’s timely additions to Edmonton, Anaheim and Philadelphia all saw those teams make it to the Stanley Cup Finals in his first year of service, quite a statement. It would then come as no surprise that Pronger won the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman, the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player along with a couple of plus/minus awards and the ultimate trophy, the Stanley Cup. Chris was a 4-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and played in a handful of NHL All Star games. No stranger to the international stage, Pronger represented Team Canada in 4 different Olympics! Considered one of the finest defenseman of his era, Pronger was recently voted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on his first ballot.

Pronger’s time in Hartford was brief, having spent only 2 seasons with the team, the 2nd of those being the strike shortened campaign of 1994-95. Needless to say, game worn jerseys from Pronger’s time in Hartford are extremely tough to find and should forever remain in strong demand among Hall of Fame collectors.

The game wear on this 1st set size 56 sweater is tremendous and consists of numerous stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, a well-salted fight strap and fine inner pilling. Shown are some beautiful photo matches of Pronger wearing this exact jersey during the 1994-95 season. On the inside hem is the official Hartford Whalers game worn jersey and set stamp. A tremendous opportunity to acquire this first ballot Hall of Famer’s 1st set sophomore season gamer, complete with stunning photo matches and tremendous game wear, choice!
