These black Bauer Tuuk Plus hockey skates were game worn Hall of Famer Paul Coffey while playing with the Los Angeles Kings. The Edmonton Oilers selected Coffey with the 6th pick in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. He broke camp with the club in 1980 and never looked back, eventually becoming the second highest scoring defenseman in NHL history. Coffey spent his formative years, 7 seasons in all, with the Oilers as their group of talented youngsters formed a dynasty. During his time in Edmonton, Coffey celebrated the franchise’s first thre Stanley Cups in 84, 85 and 87. On November 24th 1987, Coffey was dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins where he would team with Mario Lemieux for the next five years, while helping their franchise to their first Stanley Cup title in 1991. Paul spent the last decade of his career with several clubs. He was reunited with Gretzky and Kurri in Los Angeles in the early 1990’s. He eventually helped two of his new clubs, Detroit and Philadelphia, to Stanley Cup Finals appearances in the mid 1990’s.

Coffey ended his illustrious career second to only Ray Bourque in all-time goals 396, assists 1135 and points 1531 scored by a defenseman. These incredible totals rank him 6th on the all-time assist list and 13th on the all-time points list. Coffey’s playoff acumen is no less impressive having tallied nearly 200 career playoff points, which places him 5th all-time. Coffey has eight 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star selections to his credit. He played in an astounding 14 NHL All Star games. Internationally, Paul represented Team Canada in 3 Canada Cups and the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. His impressive hardware case includes 3 Norris trophies as the league’s best defenseman and 4 Stanley Cup championships. Paul is considered one of the game’s all-time greats and was so recognized in ‘The Hockey News’ book that ranked the 50 greatest players in NHL history. Coffey was honored as the 28th greatest player in NHL history in that publication.

The part he played in the Edmonton Oilers dynasty was invaluable and helped form the deadliest offensive machine ever put on the ice. His single season record for a defenseman of 48 goals, recorded in 1985-86, will likely never be topped. Paul was one of the league’s finest skaters and images of him gliding down the ice wearing the Oilers blue and orange won’t soon be forgotten. He is a most deserving Hall of Famer and was one of the finest offensive weapons in NHL history. The Oilers retired and raised Paul’s player number 7 to the rafters where it now hangs proudly alongside teammates, Gretzky, Messier, Fuhr, Kurri and Anderson.

These black Bauer skates have the player number “77” on the bottom of the right skate. Paul has autographed both skates in black sharpie. The skates show tremendous game use and will be accompanied by a letter from Paul’s teammate Warren Rychel stating that skates were given to him directly from Paul Coffey.
