GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Al Jensen Collection. This exciting collection of game used equipment and memorabilia comes directly from the personal collection of NHL goaltender, Al Jensen. Mr. Jensen personally collected and preserved these items that span his days from juniors through his NHL career. A signed letter from Mr. Jensen will accompany your purchase.

This group of Soviet Union items were acquired by Al Jensen while playing in the 1977 World Junior Championships held between December 22, 1976 and January 2, 1977 in Czechoslovakia. The Detroit Red Wings selected Jensen in the 2nd round of the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. This Hamilton native made his NHL debut in 1980-81 with Detroit where he played a single game. Al joined the Washington Capitals the following year, spending 6 seasons between the pipes in the nation’s Capital. In 1983-84, Jensen won the William M. Jennings Trophy and finished third in Vezina voting. In February of 1987, the Caps traded Jensen to the LA Kings for Garry Galley. Al wrapped up his NHL career during the following month and a half with Los Angeles. This Goalie’s final NHL won-loss record of 95 Wins, 53 Losses and 18 Ties remains rather impressive.

Included in the group is a game used goalie stick, small souvenir stick, small World Junior Championships flag covered by many pins and a World Junior Championships flag which measures 27” square. The goalies listed as playing for the Team Soviet Union in this tournament were Sergei Mylnikov and Alexander Tyzhnykh. The Soviets won the gold medal with a perfect 7-0 record. This Soviet Union collection comes directly from the personal collection of Al Jensen and will be accompanied by his LOA.
