1994-95 Ed Belfour Chicago Blackhawks Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #339

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Ed Belfour during the 1994-95 NHL season. This undrafted Hall of Fame goalie began his 18-year NHL career with the Blackhawks back in 1988-89. He tended goal for 9 seasons in Chicago, part of 1 season in San Jose, 5 in Dallas, 3 in Toronto and a final year in Florida. During that time Ed became the 3rd winningest goalie in NHL history, retiring with 484 Wins alongside a most impressive 2.50 GAA.

Belfour is tied with another Blackhawks legend, Tony Esposito, for 9th on the all-time shutouts list with 76. He won the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year in 1990-91, (4) Jennings Trophies and (2) Vezina Trophies as the leagues best goalie. Eddie played in 5 NHL All Star games and was 3 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. The Eagle also is a winner of hockey’s most prized possession, the Stanley Cup which he won with the Dallas Stars.

Eddie “The Eagle” quickly became a fan favorite in Chicago where, in his first full season with the club, he played in 74 games. It wasn’t long before Belfour had backstopped his Hawks to the Stanley Cup Finals where they eventually fell to the great Penguins team in 1992 despite his playoff heroics. Eddie will forever be looked upon as one of the best of his generation and will always hold a special place in the hearts of Blackhawks fans.

Belfour appeared in 42 of his team’s 48 games during the strike shortened 1994-95 season. He won 22 of those games, 5 by shutout and posted a 2.28 GAA, the best average of his Blackhawks career. The game wear on this size 56 goalie cut sweater is on the light side with some stick and puck marks, a salted fight strap and inner pilling. Penned on the inside fight strap is the designation of the year ‘94’. Belfour wore this sweater prior to the lockout during training camp and the pre-season and then used it again, months later, as a backup, meaning it would see only random regular season use during the strike shortened 94-95 NHL season. This jersey will be accompanied by a Blackhawks team letter.
