1986-87 Joe Paterson Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey – “20-year Anniversary”
Lot #92

This road purple and gold knit gamer by CCM was worn by Joe Paterson during the 1986-87 NHL season. The Detroit Red Wings selected Paterson in the 5th round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. This enforcer made his NHL debut with the Red Wings in 1980-81, his home for the first 4 years of his 9-year NHL career. Paterson next went to play for the Philadelphia Flyers and was part of Mike Keenan’s rough and tumble squad in the mid 80’s that went to the Stanley Cup Finals. During the 1985 playoffs, Paterson amassed 70 PIMS in 17 games before falling to the Oilers in the Finals! Joe joined the LA Kings the following year and played for parts of 3 seasons in Los Angeles before finishing up his career with the New York Rangers. This feared pugilist tuned up opponents and accumulated 829 PIMS in 291 games played! After capturing none during his playing career, Paterson recently won his first Stanley Cup with Los Angeles while working in their scouting department.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the Los Angeles Kings 20-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes and heavy inner pilling. Fight abuse is readily evident with stitch pops, a fight strap that is breaking away from its base and heavy washed out bloodstaining. Paterson suited up for 45 games in 1986-87 and he totaled a career best 158 PIMS while wearing this sweater during road games, just waging non-stop battle. This fresh to the block offering features the Kings 20-year anniversary patch and nice fight abuse, just as you would expect from this feared enforcer.
