Description


Amazing miniature souvenir hockey stick, approximately 15″ in length, signed and inscribed in pencil, "To Peggy & Jim from Howie Morenz, St. Luc Hospital, Feb 3rd 1937." Displayed in a shadowbox frame that measures 14.75 x 11.75 x 2.75. In fine condition, with moderate contrast against the dark wood.

On January 28, 1937, Morenz was taken to Hôpital St-Luc after his left leg was severely fractured in a game against the Chicago Black Hawks. After complaining of chest pains that doctors attributed to a possible heart attack, the 34-year-old Morenz died from a coronary embolism caused by blood clots from his damaged leg on March 8th. A somber yet remarkable keepsake signed in the hospital just six days after his catastrophic and ultimately life-ending injury—Morenz remains extremely rare across all signed formats. From the collection of Stephen Adamson.
