Ron Hextall Philadelphia Flyers Sher-Wood Team Signed Stick 1996-97 Stanley Cup Finals
Lot #591

This Sher-Wood 950 hockey stick was team signed by 20 members of the 1996-97 Philadelphia Flyers Stanley Cup Finals team. The Philadelphia Flyers selected Hextall in the 6th round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Hextall cracked the Flyers lineup in a big way in 1986-87. As a rookie, Hextall won the Vezina Trophy as the leagues top netminder and also captured the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in the playoffs. Hextall won 37 games as a rookie and then led his Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals where they fell in game 7 to the Edmonton Oilers dynasty. Hextall’s playoff performance was spectacular, winning 15 games, 2 by shutout and posting a 2.77 GAA. He remained a staple with the Flyers for 11 of the next 13 years, playing a season each in Quebec and New York in between. In 1996-97, a decade after his first trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, Hextall again led his team there only to fall to the mighty Detroit Red Wings. Hextall was a 1st Team All Star in 1987, played in the 1988 NHL All Star game and was the first goaltender to ever score a goal by shooting the puck into the opposition’s net, doing so both in the regular season and playoffs.

This Sher-Wood stick has the player name “Hextall” stamped on the side. It is untaped and shows no game use. Autographs include GM Bob Clarke, Karl Dykhuis, Trent Klatt, Vinnie Prospal, Paul Coffey, Scott Daniels, Chris Therien, John Leclair, Daniel Lacroix, Colin Forbes, Eric Lindros, Dale Hawerchuk (d. 2020), Dainius Zubrus, Ron Hextall, Janne Niinimaa and Mikael Renberg.
