1994-95 John Leclair Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #111

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by John Leclair during the 1994-95 NHL season, his first as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers. The Montreal Canadiens selected Leclair in the 2nd round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. With better than 400 goals to his credit, Leclair clearly established himself as one of the best power forwards of the 1990’s. Leclair, who is a St. Albans, Vermont native, graduated from the University of Vermont in 1991 and began his NHL career in 1990-91 with the Canadiens. During his second full season in the league, John’s timely playoff scoring helped lead the underdog Canadiens to the 1993 Stanley Cup championship. John partook in numerous NHL All Star games and was 5-times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star at Left Wing. After his trade to Philadelphia in 1994, Leclair formed a terrorizing duo on the Legion of Doom alongside Eric Lindros for much of the remainder of the 1990’s, wreaking havoc on opponents. He tabbed 50 goals in 3 consecutive seasons and followed those up with a couple of 40-goal years before a back injury took its toll. Lecalir joined the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2005-06 and played two final seasons before retiring in 2007. All told, this perennial All Star scored 406 Goals in his NHL career. On the international stage Leclair represented Team USA in the 1996 World Cup of hockey, where he was voted a World Cup All Star, as well as in the Olympics. Also to his credit are 2 Bud Ice Plus/Minus awards. Leclair was inducted into the Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame on November 20, 2014.

The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, an un-repaired slash gash and inner pilling. Leclair made his presence felt immediately upon arriving in Philadelphia as he teamed up with Eric Lindros and formed the Legion of Doom. In 37 games played while wearing this jersey on home ice at the Spectrum, Leclair scored 25 goals and added 24 assists for 49 points while going an impressive +21. Dating to the outset of this Flyers’ Hall of Fame career and the formation of the Legion of Doom.
