Scott Mellanby wore this helmet during the 1995-1996 season, when he racked up a career-best 70 points. He may even have been wearing it when he scored two goals on October 8, 1995, immediately after having dispatched a rat in the locker room with his stick. The events of October 8 went down in history as Mellanby’s “Rat Trick” and we love to think this helmet was there for all of it. Check out the modifications and scuffs on this hardworking piece of gear – it definitely saw some action!
