Terry Ruskowski Chicago Blackhawks White Canadien Game Used Stick
Lot #671

This white Canadien Fibreglass Pro hockey stick was game used by Terry Ruskowski while playing for the Chicago Blackhawks. Ruskowski was originally drafted in 1974 by both the Houston Aeros of the WHA and the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL. Ruskowski chose to begin his career in the WHA and played for 5 years in the fledgling league prior to their collapse. In 1979-80, he joined the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and spent the first 3+ seasons of his NHL career in the Windy City. Terry next spent 3 years with the LA Kings, 2 more with the Pittsburgh Penguins and then a final year plus with the Minnesota North Stars. Despite standing only 5’ 9” tall, Terry played big and was one of the more feared forwards of his era. A perennial triple digit PIMS man, Terry racked up a career single season best 252 PIMS in his first season with the Hawks. In 630 NHL games he amassed 1356 PIMS. He accumulated another 761 PIMS in 369 WHA games giving him better than 2000 PIMS in his career. A born leader, Ruskowski is the only player in major professional hockey history to serve as the Captain for 4 different teams. Since retiring as a player, Ruskowski has went on to a lengthy career as a Head Coach in the minor leagues, serving in that role for nearly 20 years.

This white Canadien stick has the player name “Ruskowski” stamped on the side. The player number “8” is written in black marker below the butt. The stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. It is date stamped “23 SEP 1980”. The stick is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
