1983-84 Butch Goring New York Islanders Stanley Cup Finals Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #23
This road blue mesh gamer by CCM was worn by Butch Goring during the entire 1984 Stanley Cup playoffs including the Stanley Cup Finals. The Los Angeles Kings selected Goring in the 5th round of the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft. Goring joined the Kings in 1969-70 and remained with the franchise for 11 seasons. While with LA, Butch scored 30 goals on 4 different occasions and won the 1978 Bill Masterton and Lady Byng Trophies. The Kings dealt Butch to the New York Islanders at the deadline in 1979-80. This trade proved to be one of the most significant deals in hockey history. It was Goring’s arrival in New York that literally helped kick start the Islanders dynasty. Goring and the Islanders went to the Stanley Cup Finals for five consecutive years after his arrival and they walked away with 4 straight Stanley Cups. Butch was named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy in 1981 as playoff MVP. Midway thru the 1984-85 campaign, Goring was dealt to the Boston Bruins where he spent a half season before announcing his retirement. During his 16-year NHL career, this NHL All Star scored 375 goals and 888 points. Goring was a deadly penalty killer who ranked in the top 10 in shorthanded goals 9 different seasons. His 40 career shorthanded goals rank him 5th on the NHL’s all-time list.



Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the born on date that reads “04-84”. Goring wore this jersey during the entire 1984 playoffs as the New York Islanders dynasty was making a run at their 5th consecutive Stanley Cup. The game wear on this vintage sweater is solid and consists of a number of heavy stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and areas of heavy pilling. Shown above are a number of beautiful photo matches that show Goring wearing this exact jersey during the 1984 Stanley Cup Finals in Edmonton. On the back player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Goring’s own hand. An outstanding well-worn offering with multiple photo matches to the Stanley Cup Finals, choice!
