GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Gilles Meloche Collection. This exciting collection of game used equipment and memorabilia comes directly from the personal collection of NHL goaltender, Gilles Meloche. Mr. Meloche personally collected these items that span his coaching days with the Pittsburgh Penguins. A signed letter from Mr. Meloche will accompany your purchase.

This beautiful windbreaker jacket and hockey gloves by Reebok were worn by Gilles Meloche as a coach during the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals. The Chicago Black Hawks selected Meloche in the 5th round of the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. This Montreal native made his NHL debut in 1970-71 with the Blackhawks where he played for one season. Meloche joined the California Golden Seals for the start of the 1971-72 season and became the man between the pipes for the franchise that would later relocate to Cleveland. Gilles spent the next 7 years playing the majority of the Seals and Barons games in goal. When the Barons folded following the 1977-78 season, Meloche joined the Minnesota North Stars where he played for the next 7 seasons. During that time, Gilles helped lead his team to the 1981 Stanley Cup Finals and played in two NHL All Star games. Meloche’s last stop was Pittsburgh where he represented the Penguins for three seasons before announcing his retirement. Meloche later spent 8 years as the Goalie coach for the Penguins where he captured his only Stanley Cup ring.

This stunning Reebok windbreaker jacket, size L, has the team name “Pittsburgh Penguins” on the back. The Penguins logo is on the left breast. The 2009 Stanley Cup Finals patch is on the right breast. Gilles has autographed the jacket on the front under the SCF patch.

These Reebok gloves have the coaches name “Meloche” stitched on the cuff. Gilles has autographed both gloves on the wrist. This beautiful jacket and hockey gloves were worn during the Penguins first Stanley Cup Championship of the Crosby era and come directly from the personal collection of Gilles Meloche and will be accompanied by his signed LOA.
