Paul Baxter Pittsburgh Penguins Koho Game Used Stick
Lot #489

This Koho hockey stick was used by tough guy Paul Baxter while playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Cleveland Crusaders selected Baxter with the 11th overall pick in the 1974 WHA Amateur Draft. The following season saw the Pittsburgh Penguins select Baxter in the 3rd round of the 1975 NHL Amateur Draft. This enforcer compiled some legendary PIMS totals including a career single season best of 409 PIMS in 1981-82 with the Penguins. That’s the 2nd highest total in NHL history and Baxter is one of only 3 players to have accomplished the feat. Baxter began his career with the WHA’s Cleveland Crusaders in 1974-75. He spent 5 years in the WHA playing for Cleveland and Quebec. When the WHA collapsed, Baxter and the Nordiques joined the NHL. Paul played a lone NHL season with Quebec and then spent 3 years with the Pittsburgh Penguins and finished up his playing days with 4 seasons in Calgary, which included a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. Baxter’s combined WHA and NHL career saw him amass a most impressive 2526 PIMS in 762 games played!

This Koho stick has the player name “Baxter” stamped on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. It is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
