2000-01 Pat Verbeek Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #151
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Pat Verbeek during the 2000-01 NHL season. The New Jersey Devils selected Verbeek in the 3rd round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Verbeek began his career with the Devils during their first ever season in 1982-83. He would soon become one of the team’s stars and in 1987-88 lead them to their first ever playoff appearance behind a 46 goal and 227 PIM season.

After 7 seasons in New Jersey, Verbeek was dealt to the Hartford Whalers where he toiled with great success for 6 years before joining the New York Rangers, who acquired Pat in an attempt to repeat as Stanley Cup champions in 1995. The 1995-96 season saw Verbeek power the Rangers to their last serious Cup run, as he tabbed 41 goals in a mere 69 games.

Verbeek finally captured the Stanley Cup as a member of the Dallas Stars during the late 1990’s before spending a couple of season with the Detroit Red Wings. Pat played one final year after leaving Detroit, returning to Dallas in 2001-02. All told, Verbeek tallied 522 goals, 1063 points and 2905 PIMS. Pat tallied better than 40 goals in a season four different times for three different teams. He represented Team Canada in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and partook in a couple of NHL All Star games. He remains to this day the only player in NHL history to have scored better than 500 goals while amassing 2500 PIMS.

The body of this gamer has been custom shortened by the Wings. The game wear on this 3rd set size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, heavy inner pilling and 15 team-sewn repairs, so accurately reflecting the player that wore it and who carried the nickname “little ball of hate”. On the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings game worn jersey and set tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Red Wings team letter.
