This stunning blue knit Turn Back The Clock gamer by CCM and Cosby was worn by Randy Gilhen during the 1991-92 NHL season. The Hartford Whalers selected Gilhen in the 6th round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Gilhen began his career with a 2-game stint for the Hartford Whalers in 1982-83. He next suited up for the Winnipeg Jets in 1986-87, after spending a number of years in the minors. Randy spent 3 seasons with the Jets before joining the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1989-90. He spent 2 seasons with the Penguins and was a part of their first ever Cup winning squad in 1990-91. Randy would later represent the Kings, Rangers, Lightning, Panthers and the Jets for a 2nd time before announcing his retirement after an 11-year career.
The 1991-92 season saw each of the original 6 teams sparingly don their stunning Turn Back The Clock jerseys as the NHL celebrated 75 years of hockey. This style is a throwback to the Rangers 1940 Stanley Cup winning season. The Rangers in fact had only a single set of TBTC jerseys produced and they were worn in game action a total of 13 times over the course of their Presidents Trophy winning season.
Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the 75-year NHL patch. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired holes and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Gilhen wearing this exact jersey during the 1991-92 season. This outstanding photo matched example presents Rangers fans and style collectors alike a seldom offered opportunity to acquire one of these two-decade old gems.
