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 in Rendez-Vous ’87. 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.

Rendez-Vous ‘87, replacing the NHL All Star game, contained 2 games, both played at Le Colisee in Quebec. Game 1 was held on February 11 and was won by the NHL All Stars 4-3. Game 2 was played on February 13 and was won by the USSR 5-3. The series featured NHL superstars Gretzky, Lemieux, Messier, Hawerchuk, Goulet, Kurri, Wilson, Langway, Bourque, Chelios, Fuhr and Anderson. The USSR was led by Fetisov, Kasatonov, Krutov, Larionov and Makarov. Messier and Makarov were MVP’s for their respective teams.

The face of this ring reads “NHLPA NHL USSR” with the Rendez-vous ’87 logo on the tableau. Below that are 2 diamonds. Inside 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.
