Joe Mullen Calgary Flames White Canadien Game Used Stick – Autographed – Scored his 49th Goal of the Season - Stanley Cup Season
Lot #440
This white Canadien 6001 hockey stick was game used by Hall of Famer Joe Mullen while playing for the Calgary Flames during the 1988-89 Stanley Cup season. The stick has been marked to indicate that Joe used this stick to score his 49th goal of the 1988-89 Cup winning season. Mullen, an undrafted winger who grew up in New York’s tough Hell’s Kitchen, was the first U.S. born player to score 500 NHL goals. He is deservingly a member of the 1000-point club as well as the USA Hockey Hall of Fame and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Joe began his career with the St. Louis Blues where he spent the first 5 years of his vaunted career. He joined the Calgary Flames prior to the deadline in 1985-86 and helped lead his team to the Cup Finals only to fall to the Montreal Canadiens later that spring.

Revenge would come a mere few seasons later as Mullen netted a career best 51 goals and 100 points in 1988-89 with Calgary and helped lead them to their first ever Stanley Cup championship against Montreal. After parts of 5 seasons with the Flames, the Pittsburgh Penguins saw fit to acquire Mullen in 1990-91. As he had done in the past with Calgary, Joe helped the Pens to the Finals in his first season, this time a winning effort that was followed by another the next year. Mullen spent 6 of his last 7 NHL seasons playing in the Steel City. Mullen owns a Lester Patrick trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the United States, 2 Lady Byng trophies for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability as well as 3 Stanley Cups championships. On the international stage, Mullen represented Team USA in 3 different Canada Cup games.

This white Canadien hockey stick has the player name “Mullen” stamped on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. Joe has autographed the side. On the heel, in black marker, it reads “#49 3/27/89”. Joe scored his 49th goal of the 1988-89 season on March 27, 1989 at 18:07 of the 1st period in a Flames 3-2 win against the Minnesota North Stars. The stick is uncracked and in beautiful condition and hails from the Flames 1st Stanley Cup winning season!
