A New Arrival: Kirk McLean

I will be sharing the pucks I have collected before I started this site, but this one arrived today and I figured why not post about it. This one is signed by New Jersey Devils superstar Kirk McLean.

Wait, what??

Kirk was the 107th pick in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. He played for the Devils for parts of two seasons. When I say “parts”, I mean 6 games total between 1985-1987.

Obviously, most people don’t remember Kirk as a Devil. He spent most of his career with the Vancouver Canucks following a trade in 1987. Never won a Vezina, but did have a 38 win season once. Played 16 seasons in the NHL, a total of 612 games. But he played 6 in the old Red and Green, so he is a welcome addition to this collection.

I didn’t think I would be able to find a Devils puck signed by a guy who played here for such a short amount of time, but here it is, and with a nice inscription to boot. Thanks go out to the fine seller that made this one available to me. Thanks Cojo Sport Collectibles!

The fact that the autograph and inscription are slanted as compared to the logo is triggering my OCD just a bit.
