1998-99 Dale Hunter Colorado Avalanche Game Worn Jersey – “CHS – Columbine” – Team Letter
Lot #89
This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Dale Hunter during the 1998-99 NHL season. The Quebec Nordiques selected Hunter in the 2nd round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Dale, the middle of three brothers who would all play in the NHL, made his NHL debut in 1980-81 with the Nordiques. Hunter spent 7 seasons with Quebec before a deal in 1987 sent him to the Washington Capitals. Dale remained with the Caps for 12 seasons before a deal at the trade deadline in 1998-99 sent him to the Colorado Avalanche, giving him an attempt at winning a Stanley Cup.

Hunter is the only player in the history of the NHL to have tallied 300 goals, 1000 points and 3500 PIMS. Hunter’s leadership abilities will never be questioned. He served as team Captain for both the Quebec Nordiques and the Washington Capitals during his 19-year NHL career. Since retiring, Hunter used his leadership abilities well, serving as the Head Coach of the Washington Capitals as well as the owner and Head Coach of the OHL’s London Knights where he has led his team to three Memorial Cup Championships. Dale’s 3563 PIMS ranks 2nd on the NHL’s all-time list and trails only Tiger Williams. For good measure, he spent another 727 minutes in the sin bin during his 186-post-season games. Hunter will be remembered as one of the all-time great instigators, always finding a way to get under the skin of his opponents, while still possessing the talent to light the lamp and turn around a game.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the “CHS” Columbine patch. The game wear on this 4th set size 56 Goalie cut sweater consists of stick marks, board burns and inner pilling. A tough to find Columbine patched example from the end of Hunter’s 19-year NHL career. This jersey will be accompanied by an Avalanche team letter.
