About Stamp

Canada Post is pleased to bring fans and collectors the fourth NHL All-Stars souvenir sheet of six domestic rate ($0.48) stamps. Commemorating the 2003 All-Star Game and events on February 1-2, 2003 in Florida, this set features six legendary hockey players: Bill Durnan, Raymond Bourque, Serge Savard, Stan Mikita, Mike Bossy, and Frank Mahovlich.

Raymond Bourque
Five-time Norris Trophy winner Raymond Bourque is the only non-goaltender in NHL history to win the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year and earn a spot on the First All-Star Team in his first season in the league. From his 1979-80 start with the Boston Bruins, Bourque went on to earn selections to either the First or Second All-Star Team in each of his first 17 seasons. In all, he earned 19 All-Star selections including a record-breaking 13 to the First Team. Bourque spent most of his 22-year career with the Bruins, and is the club's all-time leader in assists (1,111) and points (1,506). He became the first defenceman to top 400 goals and led the Bruins in scoring five times, ranking consistently among top-scoring league defencemen throughout his career.

About the Stamps' Design
The 2003 NHL All-Stars stamp set was designed by Stéphane Huot of Montréal, assisted by illustrator Charles Vinh and computer artist Pierre Rousseau. As with previous NHL stamp sheets, each player is shown in an action shot and in a formal portrait as part of the selvedge. New this year, we have produced a self-adhesive booklet panel of 6 designs.
