Feb 1--Jim Jackson

Jim Jackson

James Jackson

Undrafted and unsigned, the Calgary Flames inked him as a free agent at the start of the 1982-83 season. This came about largely at the insistence of the team's chief scout, Gerry Blair, who was a neighbour of Jackson's and knew of his intense desire to play.Stocky left-winger Jim Jackson played with tremendous heart during his short NHL career. He was a fairly productive scorer in junior and the minors but was relegated to a more defensive role in the big league. Jackson spent two seasons as a role player for a Calgary club that was competitive in the regular season but annihilated in the playoffs by the Edmonton Oilers. Aside from a five-game stint with the Buffalo Sabres in 1987-88, Jackson toiled in the minors the remainder of his career until his retirement in 1990.
In 112 National Hockey games, Jim scored 17 goals and 47 points
Received these blue ink signed cards IP at NHL SloPitch Tourney.
