This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Ken Morrow during the 1985-86 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected Morrow in the 4th round of the 1976 NHL Amateur Draft. This Flint, MI native spent four years at Bowling Green State University where he was three-times a 1st Team CCHA All Star and once a 2nd Team CCHA All Star. Morrow was also named the 1979 CCHA player of the year. This decorated amateur then played for the U.S. National Team in 1978 and 1979 and was then selected by Herb Brooks to play for the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. Morrow played an integral role on the “Miracle On Ice” squad that eventually took home Olympic Gold in Lake Placid during the 1980 Olympics.

There would be no rest for Morrow who was immediately called into service by the New York Islanders, playing in 18 regular season games before starting a legendary playoff journey later that spring. When the miracle ride had ended a handful of years later, Kenny was able to look back on Olympic Gold, 5 straight Stanley Cup Finals appearances and 4 Stanley Cup Rings! Morrow played his entire NHL career with the Islanders where he spent a decade on their blueline, eventually succumbing to the knee injuries that plagued him throughout his entire career. During his era, Ken was considered among the best in the NHL in his own end of the ice and is often remembered for the three-playoff overtime goals that he scored for the Islanders Dynasty. Morrow was awarded the Lester Patrick Trophy in 1996 and was elected to the US Hockey Hall of Fame in 1995.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the born on date of “85-01”. The game wear on this sweater is tremendous and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, plenty of familiar board paint transfer from the Nassau Coliseum, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, material pulls, heavy collar pilling, fine inner pilling and 20 team-sewn repairs! Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Morrow wearing this exact jersey during the 1985-86 season. Despite knee injuries that were really taking their toll, Kenny managed to play in 69 games and go +24 for the Islanders while wearing this sweater on home ice at the Coliseum. A tremendous hammered photo matched example worn by this Olympic hero and four-time Stanley Cup Champion.
