Gilles Meloche Minnesota North Stars/Pittsburgh Penguins Sher-Wood Game Used Stick
Lot #432
This Sher-Wood PMPG hockey stick was game used by Gilles Meloche while playing for either the Minnesota North Stars or Pittsburgh Penguins. Meloche began his NHL career with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1970-71. The crowded goaltending situation, led by Tony Esposito in the Windy City, provided Meloche with little playing time, which is why he welcomed the move to the Golden Seals for the start of the 1971-72 season. Gilles became the man between the pipes for the California franchise that would later relocate to Cleveland. In fact, he would spend the next 7 years playing the lion’s share of the Seals and Barons games in goal. When the Barons folded following the 1977-78 season, Meloche joined the Minnesota North Stars and became one of the faces of the franchise. Gilles spent the next 7 seasons in goal for Minnesota. During that time he helped lead his team to the 1981 Stanley Cup Finals and played in 2 NHL All Star games. Meloche’s last stop was to the Steel City where he represented the Penguins for 3 seasons before announcing his retirement. After retiring, Meloche took a job with the Penguins, switching jobs between scout, consultant and goalie coach.


This Sher-Wood hockey stick has the player name and number “Meloche G. 27” stamped on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. It is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
