This home white heavy mesh gamer by CCM and Cosby was worn by James Patrick during the 1992-93 NHL season. The Rangers selected Patrick 9th overall in 1981 and he made a home on Broadway for a decade, spanning 1983-84 thru the early part of the 1993-94 season. James next suited up briefly for the Whalers before a deal sent him to Calgary where he played for the next 5 years. His final stop was Buffalo, where Patrick spent 6 seasons. All told this defenseman spent 21 years roaming NHL bluelines. During his tenure with the Rangers, Patrick thrilled the Garden faithful with his adept skills from the point on the power play, as he rung up double-digit goal totals in 7 consecutive seasons. His career best of 71 points came in the 1991-92 campaign as the Rangers captured the President’s Trophy to the delight of their fans. Patrick also represented Team Canada in the 1984 Olympics and the thrilling 1987 Canada Cup.
Sewn to the right shoulder of this gamer is the 100-year Stanley Cup anniversary patch. Sewn to the left breast is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, washed out bloodstains, fine inner pilling and an amazing 30 team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Patrick wearing this exact jersey during the 1992-93 season. A sweet vintage offering.
