Lot #7
This road blue mesh gamer by CCM was worn by Denis Potvin during the 1983-84 Stanley Cup Playoffs and Stanley Cup Finals. The New York Islanders selected Potvin with the 1st overall pick in the 1973 NHL Amateur Draft. He began his career on Long Island in 1973-74 and won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year in the spring of 1974. Potvin spent his entire 15-year NHL career as a member of the Islanders. During that time he played in 1060 games and scored 310 goals and 1052 points. His playoff totals are no less impressive with 164 points in 185 games played. Potvin recorded 3 different 30-Goal seasons and also eclipsed the 100-point mark during his illustrious career. Denis is considered one of the NHL’s all-time great defenseman. He won 3 Norris Trophies from 1976 thru 1979 and retired as the NHL’s all-time leader in goals, assists and points among defenseman, both in the regular season and playoffs. Denis was a 7-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star who appeared in 9 NHL All Star Games. Potvin became the Captain of the Islanders in 1979-80 and immediately thereafter led the team to 5 consecutive Stanley Cup Finals, hoisting the Cup 4 straight times from 1980-83 and earning dynasty status in the process. Internationally, Potvin represented Team Canada in the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cups.



Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. Sewn into the collar is the born on date “04-84”. The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, a good many board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops and inner pilling. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Potvin wearing this exact jersey during the 1984 Stanley Cup Finals. This was the last Stanley Cup Finals gamer ever worn by Potvin and it officially marked the end of the New York Islanders Dynasty. This important well-worn example sports the prestigious letter of honor and is photo matched to the last Stanley Cup Finals game of this Hall of Famer’s illustrious career, choice!
