1995-96 Ray Schultz Calgary Hitmen Game Worn Jersey - Calgary Hitmen Inaugural Season - Team Letter
Lot #228

This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Ray Schultz during the 1995-96 WHL season, the inaugural season for the Calgary Hitmen. The Ottawa Senators selected Schultz in the 8th round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. Schultz made his NHL debut with the New York Islanders in 1997-98 and played for parts of 6 seasons with the club. Ray’s professional career spanned 1997-2006. During that time this enforcer spent time in the IHL and AHL, compiling lofty PIMS totals.

Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, inner pilling and fight abuse with a trauma laden front collar with team-sewn repair work beginning at the area of the crossover and extending downward onto the upper chest. The Calgary Hitmen were co-founded by wrestling legend Bret “The Hitman” Hart and much of the team’s jersey style were a play in homage to their famous co-founder. This sharp looking example features a unique crest that was only worn by the Hitmen during their inaugural season, after their first attempt didn’t pass the league test, deemed too graphic. Schultz played in 66 games that year, scoring 20 points from his position on the point and leading the team by a wide margin with a most impressive 282 PIMS! This elusive jersey style was worn during Calgary’s inaugural season by this former NHL enforcer. This jersey will be accompanied by a Hitmen team letter.
