Rick MacLeish Hartford Whalers Koho Game Issued Stick
Lot #431

This Koho Silverfibre hockey stick was issued for use by Rick MacLeish while playing for the Hartford Whalers. MacLeish was the 4th overall selection in the 1970 NHL Amatuer draft by the Boston Bruins. He would never suit up for the Bruins, instead beginning a 14-year career with the Philadelphia Flyers where he would spend parts of 12 of those seasons. While with the Flyers, Rick would partake in 4 Stanley Cup Finals emerging victorious 2 times. MacLeish scored the game winning goal in game 6 of the 1974 Cup Finals on home ice as the Flyers won their first Stanley Cup. He was the Flyers first ever 50-goal man a feat he accomplished in 1972-73 and he played in 3 NHL All Star games.

In the summer of 1981 MacLeish was traded away from his beloved Flyers, the only team he knew. He began the year in Hartford and was dealt again mid season to the Penguins where he suited up in 40 contests and sparked the upstart team offensively. In 1982-83 Rick performed at a point per game clip, but had his season shortened by injury. He was signed as a free agent by the Flyers the following summer, spent half a season with them and was then dealt to the Red Wings where he finished out his career.

This Koho stick has the player name “MacLeish” stamped on the side. It is date stamped “NOV 3 1981”. The stick is un-taped and shows no use. It is uncracked and is in beautiful condition.
