Description
1999-00 John Vanbiesbrouck Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #182
This road orange air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by John Vanbiesbrouck during the 1999-00 NHL season. Beezer’s NHL career spanned 20 seasons. He spent the first 11 of them with the New York Rangers. In 1993-94 Beezer joined the expansion Florida Panthers, where he remained for 5 years. Vanbiesbrouck next tended goal for two seasons in Philadelphia which preceded a year with the Islanders and a final stint with the Devils. During his career he won 374 games, registered 40 shutouts and posted a 2.97 GAA. He partook in 3 NHL All Star games and was twice a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. In 1986 he captured the Vezina Trophy as the leagues top goalie. John represented Team USA in the 1998 Olympic Games as well as the 1987 and 1991 Canada Cups. The Stanley Cup would ultimately elude him, but not for the lack of effort, as we all remember him carrying the upstart Florida Panthers on his back to the Finals only to fall to Patrick Roy and his mighty Colorado Avalanche squad.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the year 2000 NHL patch. This size 58 goalie cut sweater has custom elasticized sleeves and shows very light use. The 99-00 season saw Vanbiesbrouck play in 50 games for the Flyers. He posted 25 Wins, 3 by way of shutout and a miniscule 2.20 GAA. Not bad for a 36-year old 5’ 8” goalie in a league of giants!
