Al Jensen Washington Capitals Memorabilia Group The Al Jensen Collection Al Jensen Letter
Lot #386
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 lot includes numerous items from Al’s seasons in the nation’s capital. 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 are four Player of the Month Plaques from the Washington Capitals Fan Club. The plaques are from November 1982, December 1982, November 1983 and December 1985. Also included is a plaque commemorating the Capitals longest undefeated streak in team history, 14 games from November 24, 1982 – December 23, 1982. In addition there are three hats commemorating Jensen shutouts, October 25, 1983 against the Penguins, October 26, 1983 against the Devils and March 1, 1986 against the Rangers. Finally, the group includes numerous photos of Al in his Capitals uniform along with other NHL and AHL photos. These items come directly from the personal collection of Al Jensen and will be accompanied by his LOA.
