1982-83 Greg Gilbert New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey Rookie - Stanley Cup Season
Lot #77

This home white mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Greg Gilbert during the 1982-83 Stanley Cup winning season, his rookie year. The New York Islanders selected Gilbert in the 4th round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut in 1981-82 with the Islanders with whom he played for 8 seasons. Greg won the Stanley Cup in each of his first two years in the league and lost in the Finals in his 3rd season. Gilbert enjoyed a 15-year NHL career and after his days with the Islanders he played for the Blackhawks for parts of 5 years, was a member of the 1994 Stanley Cup winning New York Rangers team and then spent 2 years in St. Louis before retiring. Since leaving the ice, Gilbert has spent much of the past 20 years as a Head Coach, which included a 3-year stint with the Calgary Flames. Gilbert’s finest individual season came in 1983-84 as he played a full schedule for the first time in his NHL career and scored 31 goals and 66 points while going a remarkable +51 for the Islanders during their “Drive for Five”!

The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, inner pilling and un-repaired trauma to the left elbow. On the back beneath the player numbers is a double fight strap. On the right breast is a beautiful bold blue sharpie signature in Gilbert’s own hand. Gilbert appeared in 45 games during the Stanley Cup winning 1982-83 campaign, scoring 8 goals and 19 points as the Islanders went on to attain Dynasty status later that spring. A terrific Dynasty era sweater from Gilbert’s rookie season.
