1994-95 Ray Bourque NHL Stars Lockout Charity Game Worn Jersey
Lot #65

This white mesh gamer by CCM was worn by Ray Bourque at Providence College on December 17, 1994 during the 1994-95 NHL lockout. The Boston Bruins selected Bourque with the 8th overall pick in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Bourque’s Hall of Fame career spanned a total of 22 seasons with 21 of them being spent in Boston. Sadly, during that time Ray was unable to bring a Stanley Cup home to the Garden though he did lead his team to the Cup Finals twice. Ray’s impressive career accomplishments are too lengthy to list in full; some of the highlights include: 1980 Calder Trophy for NHL Rookie of the Year, 1992 King Clancy Memorial Trophy as the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution to his community, (12) 1st and (6) 2nd Team NHL All Star selections, 18 All Star game appearances, 5 Norris Trophies as the leagues best defenseman, a total which trails the likes of Bobby Orr 8, Doug Harvey 7 and Niklas Lidstrom 6. In Ray’s last season he finally earned the Trophy that had eluded him his entire career, the Stanley Cup as a member of the Colorado Avalanche.

Bourque is the all-time leading scorer among defenseman with 1579 points, which also places him among the elite on the all-time NHL scoring list. Ray is near the top on the all time assists list with 1169, trailing the likes of Gretzky, Messier and Francis. He is also the all-time leading goal scorer among defenseman with 410. Ray also resides in the top 10 all-time leading playoff scorers in NHL history. He was elected to the Hall of Fame on his first ballot in 2004 and will forever be remembered as one of the greatest defenseman in NHL history.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. Light but obvious game wear exists on this size XXL sweater. On the back player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Bourque’s own hand. On the inside hem is the official game worn information relating to this charity game, including the charity it will benefit, the date and the venue. A nice example sporting a beautiful autograph as well as the coveted letter of honor from a time when NHL players were partaking in charitable events around North America as they awaited the end to the dreaded lockout.
