Stan Mikita was a Slovak–Canadian ice hockey player for the Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League, generally regarded as the best centre of the 1960s. In 2017, he was named one of the 100 Greatest NHL Players. He became the first Slovak-born player who won the Stanley Cup in 1961.
This Northland Pro hockey stick was game used by Hall of Famer Stan Mikita during the 1960’s. Mikita’s Hall of Fame career began with his rookie season in Chicago during the 1959-60 season. He adjusted to the rugged original 6 style of play rather quickly, standing up admirably for himself as evidenced by his 119 PIMS in 67 games played. In 1960-61, Mikita and his Black Hawks won the Stanley Cup, a title that was the last one in franchise history for nearly 50 years.
Presented is a “Northland Pro” model game used stick during the mid 1960’s by the popular Hall of Fame center, Stan Mikita. His identifier “MIKITA” was stamped on one side of shaft and original tape was removed from the blade. The blade has handwritten notations in black felt tip. Blade portion measures in at 11″ with handle shaft at 53″.
It was stamped on both sides of the shaft in black, “NORTHLAND PRO”, “Glass Fused”, “CENTER” and “MADE BY NORTHLAND SKI MFG. CO. ST. PAUL, MINN U.S.A.”. The stick exhibits good game use throughout and is uncracked.
Interestingly, from the consigner a photo of Mikita and his son with the stick is included. Note in the photo, however this is an earlier clean new version of the stick before it was put to great use on the ice in a game. Without the visible use detailing, we are designating it as a photo style match.
The stick was autographed in black felt tip by Stan Mikita as well as fellow members of the 1965-66 Black Hawks team. Signers include: Dave Dryden; Chico Maki; Phil Esposito; Glenn Hall; Ken Hodge; Al MacNeil; Pierre Pilote; Doug Jarrett; Pat Stapleton and Kenny Wharram.
The 1965–66 Chicago Black Hawks season was the Hawks’ 40th season in the NHL, and the club was coming off a third-place finish in 1964–65, as Chicago had a record of 34–28–8, earning 76 points, which was their lowest point total since 1961–62. The Hawks then upset the first place Detroit Red Wings in the NHL semi-finals, before losing to the Montreal Canadiens in seven games in the 1965 Stanley Cup Finals.
