This road blue mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Bryan Trottier during the 1982 Stanley Cup Playoffs and Stanley Cup Finals and then again throughout the 1982-83 Stanley Cup winning season. The New York Islanders selected Trottier in the 2nd round of the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. Bryan began his NHL career with the Islanders in 1975-76 and won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year on the strength of 32 goals and 63 assists for 95 points in 80 games played. It was an incredible start to a legendary Hall of Fame career.

Trotts spent 15 seasons on Long Island and during that time became one of the most dominant two-way players in league history as he led his team to dynasty status with 4 consecutive Stanley Cup titles. Bryan is still the Islanders record holder for games played, assists and points. He also became the fastest player in NHL history to reach 400, 500, 600 and 700 career points, records that were surpassed and are now held by Wayne Gretzky. Furthermore, Bryan was the youngest player to record 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800 and 900 career points, marks also surpassed and now held by Wayne Gretzky. Following his time with the Islanders, Bryan spent 3 seasons providing veteran leadership to the Pittsburgh Penguins and in the process won another 2 Stanley Cup Rings. Trottier was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, 1997.

Trottier’s career accomplishments are numerous and include 524 goals, 901 assists and 1425 regular season points. His playoff scoring totals are no less impressive with 71 goals, 113 assists and 184 points, which also rank him among the all-time elite. In addition to his 6 Stanley Cup titles and the Calder Trophy, Bryan was 4-times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star who played in 9 NHL All Star games. Also to his credit is the 1979 NHL plus/minus award, the Bud man of the year, the 1989 King Clancy Memorial Trophy, the 1979 Art Ross Trophy for leading the NHL in scoring, the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP in 1980 and the 1979 Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP. Internationally, Bryan represented Team NHL in the 1979 Challenge Cup, Team Canada in the 1981 Canada Cup and Team USA in the 1984 Canada Cup.

The game wear on this sweater is tremendous and consists of numerous stick and slash marks, loads of board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, trauma, stitch pops, collar pilling, fine inner pilling and some terrific team-sewn repair work including plenty of crest reinforcement. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Trottier wearing this exact jersey during the 1982 Stanley Cup Finals including the rare Cup hoist that followed the Islanders 4-game sweep of the Vancouver Canucks. The slanted crest is obvious as are the remnants of the horizontal stick marks running through the “NY” as well as the semi-circular horizontal slash mark running through the lower part of the crest including the lettering “ANDE”. Further, the remnants of the heavy vertical slash mark running through the Island and the stick blade remain while the team’s attempt at removal left a distinguishable whitish scuff that along with the obvious slanted crest are easily recognizable on the many photo matches from the 1982-83 regular season.

The 1982 Stanley Cup Playoffs saw Bryan score 29 points and add 40 PIMS in 19 playoff games while leading the Islanders to their 3rd consecutive Stanley Cup Championship, their only one away from home ice, and thus the only one while wearing their road blue jerseys. Trottier then went on to wear this battered jersey throughout the 1982-83 season while playing a full slate of 80 games and earning the right to play in his 5th NHL All Star Game.

This historic jersey has been tucked away in private hands for quite some time and is now being offered at Auction for the very first time. This incredible example shows tremendous game use and is accompanied by a plethora of wonderful photo matches, including the rare Stanley Cup hoist from an era when so few even touched the Cup on the ice. A rare and incredible representation of the New York Islanders Dynasty, Hall of Fame worthy, choice!
