Sergei Gonchar Pittsburgh Penguins White Nike/Bauer Stanley Cup Finals Game Worn Helmet Stanley Cup Season - Photo Match
Lot #735
This white hockey helmet by Nike/Bauer was game worn by Sergei Gonchar while playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals. Gonchar is a 15-year veteran who has been among the steadiest defenseman of his generation. He spent the first 10 seasons of his career in the nation’s capital, where he was consistently among the goal leaders of all NHL defensemen. After a short stop in Beantown, Sergei joined the Penguins where he prospered for 5 years. Gonchar then inked a 3-year deal with the Senators before joining the Dallas Stars for the 2013-14 season. During his career he has made three trips to the Cup Finals, once with Washington and twice with the Penguins where he walked away victorious in 2009, the year in which he wore this helmet. Sergei represented team Russia in two World Cups of Hockey, numerous World Championships and in three Olympic Games. He is a 2-time 2nd Team NHL All Star and has partaken in 5 NHL All Star games.

This white Nike/Bauer helmet has the player number “55” on the back. The Penguins logos are on both sides. The 2009 Stanley Cup Finals sticker is on the back left. The visor remains in place on the front. Shown above are a couple of photo matches of Gonchar wearing this exact helmet during the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals.
