Miikka Kiprusoff Sharks Game Worn Goalie Pads
Lot #264

These black, white and teal Heaton goalie pads were game worn by Miikka Kiprusoff at the beginning of his NHL career with the San Jose Sharks. Miikka was selected by the Sharks in the 5th round (116th overall) of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. After several seasons with the Sharks Miikka joined the Calgary Flames for the 2003-04 season. Kiprusoff’s star began to shine in Calgary. He took over as the #1 goalie in 2004 and hasn’t looked back. That season Miikka led the Flames to their first playoff appearance since the mid 1990’s as well as their first Stanley Cup Finals appearnance since 1989.

In 2003-04 he led the NHL in GAA (1.69) and save percentage (.933). He also played in all 26 playoff contests posting a miniscule 1.85 GAA with 5 shutouts leading the Flames to within one victory of the Stanley Cup. The next season, 2005-06, saw Kiprusoff record 10 shutouts and 42 Wins. That season Miikka captured the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goalie as well as the Jennings Trophy for fewest goals allowed. He was voted 1st team NHL All Star in 2006 and played in the NHL All Star game the following year. This season was another beauty for Kiprusoff as he started 72 games, had 35 Wins and a GAA of 2.31. Miikka has also represented his native Finland in the Olympics and the World Cup of Hockey.

These Heaton goalie pads show great game use and have Kiprusoff's name stitched on the side.
