1997-98 Rick Tocchet Phoenix Coyotes Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #159
This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Rick Tocchet during the 1997-98 NHL season. Tocchet began his NHL career with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1984-85, and as a rookie was treated to a Stanley Cup Finals run where the Flyers fell to the Edmonton Oilers. Two seasons later Rick would again join his Flyers teammates in another incredible Stanley Cup Finals run that pushed Wayne Gretzky’s Edmonton Oilers to a game 7. Tocchet’s ride in Philadelphia lasted into the 1991-92 season when he was dealt for Mark Recchi.

It proved a fruitful deal for Tocchet as in his first season in Pittsburgh, Rick won his first and only Stanley Cup trophy, as he teamed on a fearsome line with Mario Lemieux. Rick’s career lasted 18 seasons that included an 8-year run with the Flyers to begin it and another 3 year run with the same team to complete it. In the middle were notable stays in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Washington, Boston and Phoenix.

During his career, Tocchet was twice a 40-goal scorer, a career high of 48 coming with the Penguins in 1992-93. His career total of 440 goals and 952 points may surprise some, whereas his 2970 career PIMS should surprise nobody. Tocchet didn’t let up come playoff time either as evidenced by his 471 playoff PIMS in 145 playoff games. Tocchet was also a 4-time participant in the NHL All Star game.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The sleeves on this gamer have been custom shortened for Tocchet by the team. The game wear on this 2nd set size 58 goalie cut sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, a rusted fight strap, pulls and inner pilling. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Phoenix Coyotes game worn jersey and set tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Coyotes team letter.
