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 bronze medal was awarded to Al Jensen for Team Canada’s third place finish at the 1978 World Junior Championships held between December 22, 1977 and January 3, 1978 in Canada. 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.

This bronze medal reads “1978” and “World Junior Championships” on the front with the IIHF logo and “International Ice Hockey Federation” on the back. The medal is in nice condition with only light tarnishing and comes directly from the personal collection of Al Jensen and will be accompanied by his LOA.
