This road purple knit gamer by CCM was worn by Marcel Dionne during the 1983-84 NHL season. Marcel was selected 2nd overall in the 1971 NHL entry draft by the Detroit Red Wings. After 4 seasons in Detroit, Marcel was traded to the LA Kings where he would carve out his legend for the next 12 seasons, before finishing up his career in the Big Apple.
Dionne’s career statistics are gaudy. His 731 career goals rank him 4th on the all-time list behind only Gretzky, Howe and Hull. His 1040 assists rank him 9th in that category, a lone assist in front of Lemieux. His 1771 career points rank him 5th all-time behind Gretzky, Messier, Howe, and Francis. Marcel is a four-time 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. He partook in 8 NHL All Star games. Marcel was a member of Team Canada in the 72 Summit Series, the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cups and several World Championships. He represented Team NHL against the Russians in the 1979 Challenge Cup. In his career he tabbed 10 different 40-goal seasons, connecting for 50 or more 6 times. His hardware is impressive and includes (2) Lady Byng trophies for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, (2) Lester B. Pearson awards as the NHL’s outstanding player along with (1) Art Ross trophy for leading the NHL in scoring. The Hockey Hall of Fame was made to honor players such as Dionne.
Fine game use exists on this sweater in the form of numerous stick marks, plenty of board burns, a smattering of red and white board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and fine inner pilling. In a limited campaign of only 66 games, Marcel tabbed 39 goals and 92 points while wearing this sweater. Choice vintage offering for the Hall of Fame collector.
