GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Michel Goulet Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys, game used sticks, game worn equipment and memorabilia come directly from the personal collection of Hockey Hall of Famer, Michel Goulet. Mr. Goulet personally collected and preserved these items over the course of his legendary NHL career. A signed letter from Mr. Goulet will accompany your purchase.

This 10k gold and diamond ring was presented to Hall of Famer Michel Goulet for his participation for Team Canada during the 1984 Canada Cup. The Quebec Nordiques selected Goulet in the 1st round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. This Quebec native made his professional debut in 1978-79 with the WHA’s Birmingham Bulls. When NHL expansion ensued the following year, Goulet made his NHL debut in 1979-80 with the Quebec Nordiques.

Goulet was among the finest Left Wingers of his generation, and in NHL history for that matter. He netted a spectacular 548 goals and 1152 points during a 15-year NHL career. Michel’s goal totals from the period of 1981-82 thru 1987-88 is an impressive read; 42, 57, 56, 55, 53, 49 and 48 respectively. He was a five-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star who also played in five NHL All Star Games. Goulet represented Team Canada during the World Championships, the 1984 and 1987 Canada Cup and also represented Team NHL during Rendezvous ’87. Following 11 seasons with the Nordiques, Goulet joined the Chicago Blackhawks and soon after led them on an epic run to the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals. Merely two seasons later, Michel suffered a vicious head injury during the latter stages of the 1993-94 season, putting a sudden end to his Hall of Fame career.

The 1984 Canada Cup was played September 1-18, 1984. This round-robin tournament featured Team Canada, Team Soviet Union, Team USA, Team Sweden, Team Czechoslovakia, and Team West Germany. Although a disappointed Team Canada was seated 4th after the round-robin portion, a 3-2 overtime win against the 1st seated and undefeated Soviet Union in the Semi-Finals put them in the Finals against Team Sweden. The Finals were a best of three which Team Canada swept to win the Canada Cup. Wayne Gretzky led the tournament in scoring while John Tonelli was named tournament MVP.

The face of this ring reads “COUPE CANADA CUP” with the Canada Cup logo on the tableau. Below that are four diamonds. On one shank it reads “19” while the other reads “84”. Inside it is stamped 10k. This fresh to the hobby example comes directly from the personal collection of Michel Goulet and will be accompanied by his signed LOA.
