1986-87 Marcel Dionne Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey – “20-year Anniversary”
Lot #13

This home gold knit gamer by CCM was worn by Marcel Dionne during the 1986-87 NHL season. The Detroit Red Wings selected Dionne with the 2nd overall pick in the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft. After playing three seasons of junior hockey with the St. Catharines Black Hawks, Dionne made his NHL debut with Detroit in 1971-72. Following four productive seasons in Detroit, Marcel was traded to the LA Kings where he would carve out his legend over the next 12 seasons prior to finishing up his career with the New York Rangers.

Dionne’s career statistics are indeed gaudy. His 731 career goals rank him 5th on the all-time list behind only Gretzky, Howe, Jagr and Hull. Marcel ranks 10th on the all-time assists list with 1040 while his 1771 career points rank 6th all-time behind Gretzky, Jagr, Messier, Howe, and Francis. Marcel partook in 8 NHL All Star Games and is a four-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star at Center. Dionne was a member of Team Canada in the 72 Summit Series, the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cups and several World Championships. He also represented Team NHL against the Soviets in the 1979 Challenge Cup. Dionne’s career saw him tab 10 different 40-goal seasons, connecting for 50 or more 6 times! His array of hardware is impressive and includes 2 Lady Byng trophies for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, 2 Lester B. Pearson awards as the NHL’s outstanding player along with 1 Art Ross Trophy for leading the NHL in scoring. The Hockey Hall of Fame was made to honor players such as Dionne.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the left shoulder is the Los Angeles Kings 20-year anniversary patch. Sewn into the collar is the born on date “86-01. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, fine inner pilling, a team-sewn repair to the right breast and a sizable blow out patchwork team-sewn repair to the trauma-laden right sleeve. Dionne wore this jersey on home ice at the LA Forum during what turned out to be his last of 12 seasons with the Kings. In 67 games before his trade to New York at the deadline, Dionne struck for 24 goals and added 50 assists for 74 points to go along with 54 PIMS. A well-worn anniversary patched offering complete with the coveted letter of honor and hailing from Dionne’s last season wearing the purple and gold, choice!
