Lot #10

This road blue mesh gamer by Syosset Sports was worn by Bryan Trottier during the 1983-84 NHL 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.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the wash, size and year tagging. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and color hue, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and a handful of team-sewn repairs. In just 68 games played, Trottier struck for 40 goals and added 71 assists for a robust 111 points and earned 2nd Team NHL All Star honors for his efforts. It turned out to be the last 40-goal and 100-point seasons of Bryan’s legendary career. One that saw Trotts and the Islanders battle valiantly all season long to reach their 5th consecutive Stanley Cup Finals in their famous “Drive For Five”. We’re personally familiar with the origins of this jersey since leaving the Islanders locker room several decades ago. Since that time it has sat in private hands and is now being offered publicly for the first time. A tremendous well-worn example that is fresh to the hobby and hails from the last great season of Trottier’s Hall of Fame career, choice!
