"RANFORD 30" is stitched on these Vaughn leg pads, which are photo-matched to the Boston Bruins' 3-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche at McNichols Sports Arena in Denver. Ranford started and saved 33 of 36 shots, surrendering goals to Sandis Ozolinsh, Mike Keane, and Claude Lemieux.

The black, white and gold leg pads match the Bruins' 1997 style that featured the "B" crest on white home jerseys and black away jerseys with yellow, white and black trim.

He played an impressive 77 games in net, 37 for Boston and 40 for Edmonton after being traded for Mariusz Czerkawski, Sean Brown and Boston's 1st round choice (Matthieu Descoteaux) in 1996 Entry Draft. Ranford also finished tenth in the Vezina trophy voting in 1990-1991.

On March 1 of the 1996-1997 season, Ranford was traded to Washington by Boston with Adam Oates and Rick Tocchet for Jim Carey, Anson Carter, Jason Allison and Washington's 3rd round choice (Lee Goren) in 1997 Entry Draft. He was traded to Tampa during the 1998 offseason, and then to Detroit during the 1998-1999 season after logging 32 games and a shutout for the Lightning. He went 3-0 in four games for the Red Wings backing up Chris Osgood.
