GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The John Shipman Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys, game used sticks, game worn equipment and memorabilia come directly from the personal collection of John Shipman. Mr. Shipman personally collected and preserved these items over the course of his tenure as the Montreal Canadiens assistant trainer from 1988-97. A signed letter from Mr. Shipman will accompany your purchase.

These blue goalie blocker and catcher by Koho were game worn by Hall of Famer Patrick Roy while playing for the Montreal Canadiens in 1994. The Montreal Canadiens selected Roy in the 3rd round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. This Quebec native made his NHL debut in 1984-85 with the Canadiens where he backstopped the team for 12 seasons. There are many who consider Roy to be the greatest goaltender in the history of the sport. He retired as the NHL’s all-time leader in wins with 551, a longstanding record that was previously held by the legendary Terry Sawchuk and has since been surpassed by Martin Brodeur. Roy is the current record holder with an amazing 151 playoff Wins, more than 50 victories better than Martin Brodeur who resides in second place. To go along with his four Stanley Cup rings, he carries three Conn Smythe Trophies as Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The first of those playoff MVP’s came as a rookie in 1986 when Roy led the upstart Canadiens back to Stanley Cup glory. To his credit are three Vezina Trophies and five Jennings Trophies, noting his excellence between the pipes. Patrick was 6-times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star who also played in double-digit NHL All Star Games.

Following parts of 12 seasons tending goal and a pair of Stanley Cups for the Montreal Canadiens, Roy was dealt to the expansion Colorado Avalanche where he continued his dominance and led his brethren to another pair of Stanley Cup titles. All told Patrick guarded the pipes over 19 NHL seasons. He went out while he was still one of the NHL’s best, posting 30+ Wins and 60+ games in each of his last 11 non-strike shortened seasons. His GAA in his final season was 2.18 while the season prior he posted a career best 1.94 GAA. Roy, who excelled during three different decades, will forever be viewed as one of hockey’s all-time greats. Roy was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame on his first ballot with the class of 2006.

Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Roy wearing these exact gloves in 1994. These blue Koho gloves show solid game use and come directly from the personal collection of former Montreal Canadiens assistant trainer John Shipman and are accompanied by his signed LOA.
