Description
Mid 1980's Petr Svoboda Montreal Canadiens Game Worn Jersey
Lot #112
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Petr Svoboda circa the mid 1980’s. Petr spent 17 seasons patrolling NHL bluelines after becoming the 5th overall selection in the 1985 NHL entry draft by the Montreal Canadiens. He spent his first 8 years in the league as a member of Les Habitants, winning the 1986 Stanley Cup. His other stops included Buffalo, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay. All told Petr partook in better than 1000 NHL games and racked up better than 1600 PIMS in the process.

This striking Canadiens gamer was worn on home ice at the Montreal Forum circa the mid 1980’s as Les Habitants were re-establishing themselves as an NHL force thanks in large part to winning the 1986 Stanley Cup. Despite the Canadiens best dry-cleaning efforts, the game wear on this sweater is solid and easily recognizable. There are numerous stick marks, board burns, plenty of that recognizable board paint transfer from the hallowed Montreal Forum, un-repaired burn holes, an un-repaired skate slice on the hem, washed out bloodstains, inner pilling and more than a handful of team-sewn repairs. An outstanding example worn during the 1980’s rebirth of this storied franchise.
