Lot #425

This black Bauer Supreme 3030 hockey stick was game used by Pavol Demitra while playing for the Grand Rapids Griffins in 1996-97. Demitra was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. He played parts of 3 seasons with the Senators before a trade in November of 1996 brought him to St. Louis. Pavol played briefly for the Blues IHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, before joining the Blues in 1996-97 season. Demitra played 8 seasons with the Blues scoring 20+ goals each season with 3 of them being 30+ goal seasons. After the 2004 strike season, Pavol played 1 season with the Kings, 2 with the Wild and a final 2 seasons with the Canucks. He was still a consistent NHL scorer up to his final year in Vancouver. Demitra ended his career with over 300 goals and over 750 points. Pavol played in 3 NHL All Star games and was the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy winner in 2000. He was an All Star selection in the 2010 Olympics (the only non-North American selection) while leading the entire tournament in scoring with 10 points.

After the NHL, Pavol went to Russia to play in the KHL. Pavol tragically lost his life on September 7th 2011 in a plane crash that killed 43 people including all of Yaroslavl Lokomotiv’s players and coaching staff.

This black Bauer stick has the player name “P Demitra” stamped on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt. Some of the blade taped has been removed so Pavol could autograph it. The stick is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
