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 1980-81 Adirondack Red Wings Calder Cup Championship Ring by Balfour was awarded to Al Jensen for being part of the 1980-81 Adirondack Red Wings Calder Cup winning championship team. 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 ring features the Red Wings logo on the red stoned tableau. Around the logo it reads “ADIRONDACK RED WINGS” on the top and “CHAMPIONSHIP” underneath. One shank has the player name “JENSEN” the AHL logo and the player number “1”. The other shank reads “1981” with the Calder Cup. Faded inside is the player initials “A.J.” as well as Balfour Celestrum. This beautiful ring represents the first AHL championship in Red Wings history and comes directly from the personal collection of Al Jensen and will be accompanied by his LOA.
