1977-78 Darryl Edestrand & Larry Carriere LA Kings Game Worn Jersey
Lot #77

This road purple mesh gamer by Goodman & Sons was worn by Larry Carriere and Darryl Edestrand during the 1977-78 NHL season. Edestrand began his NHL career with the St. Louis Blues in 1967-68. He joined the Philadelphia Flyers in 1969-70 and then moved across the state to represent the Pittsburgh Penguins for 3 seasons before joining the Boston Bruins where he played for parts of 5 years that included a number of deep playoff runs in the 1970’s. Edestrand joined the LA Kings at the deadline in 1977-78 where he played the last couple of years of his 10-year NHL career.

The Bufalo Sabres selected Carriere in the 2nd round of the 1972 NHL Amateur Draft. He spent 3 seasons in Buffalo that culminated in a trip to the 1975 Stanley Cup Finals. Larry also suited up for the Atlanta Flames, Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs over the course of his 7-year NHL career.

Carriere officially became a member of the Buffalo Sabres on March 12, 1978. The Kings acquired Edestrand from Boston on March 13, 1978.

Sewn into the hem of this gamer is the Goodman & Sons tag. The game wear on this size 50 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and some team-sewn repair work. Affixed to the inside back player number is the original garter style fight strap. This beautiful fresh to the hobby purple and gold example was worn by a pair of NHL veterans while representing the Los Angeles Kings during the 1977-78 season.
