This home white mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Bryan Trottier during the 1981-82 NHL regular season, Stanley Cup Playoffs and Stanley Cup Finals. 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 Extra Large sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, heavy amounts of board paint transfer from the boards at the Nassau Coliseum, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, heavy inner pilling and in excess of a dozen team-sewn repairs! Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Trottier wearing this exact jersey on home ice during the 1982 Stanley Cup Finals against the Vancouver Canucks. Further, while viewing video of Trottier on home ice during the 1982 Stanley Cup Finals, the heavy blue paint transfer on the lower left verso is also readily evident!

Bryan scored a career best 50 Goals while adding 79 Assists for 129 Points while wearing this sweater as the 1981-82 Islanders stormed to 54 Wins and 118 points, both franchise records, and one of the NHL’s best points totals of all-time. Those Islanders also set an NHL record with 15 consecutive Wins, established during an era when regular season overtime did not exist! Trotter and the Isles went on to win their 3rd consecutive Stanley Cup that spring, completing one of the great seasons in NHL history. For his outstanding efforts Bryan earned the right to play in his 4th NHL All Star Game and was selected as the 2nd Team NHL All Star at Center. He followed up a brilliant regular season with another outstanding Stanley Cup Playoff run. In 19 games played, Bryan put up career bests of 23 playoff assists and 29 playoff points while wearing this jersey as he helped lead the Islanders to their 3rd Consecutive Stanley Cup Championship. This jersey has spent the past couple of decades residing in a private collection and is now being offered at Auction for the very first time. A tremendous well-worn fresh to the hobby photo matched example, worn by this legendary Hall of Famer during the 1982 Stanley Cup Finals as he and the New York Islanders attained Dynasty status, choice!
