1986 Ken Morrow New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey
Lot #60

This road blue knit gamer by CCM and Syosset Sports was worn by Ken Morrow during the 1986 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected Morrow in the 4th round of the 1976 NHL Amatuer Draft. This Flint Michigan native spent 4 years at Bowling Green State University where he was 3-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 amateur then joined the U.S. National Team in 1979-80 where he played in 56 games before trying out for the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. Morrow made the team and played an integral role on the “Miracle On Ice” squad that eventually took home gold in Lake Placid during the 1980 Winter 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 playoff journey that spring that had turned into a dynasty a handful of years later. After 5 straight Stanley Cup Finals appearances, 4 Championship Rings and some rather timely goals, Morrow would play out the remainder of his NHL career with the Islanders in less dramatic fashion. All told Morrow spent a decade on the Islanders blueline, eventually succumbing to the knee injuries that plagued him throughout his career. During his era, Ken was considered among the best in the league in his own end of the ice. Kenny was awarded the Lester Patrick Trophy in 1996.

The game wear on this vintage knit consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, a fight strap that has lost the battle to salt and rust and inner pilling. Also worthy of mention is a nameplate change, a commonality on the Islanders knits circa the mid 1980’s. Forever beloved by U.S. hockey fans and Islanders fans alike, Morrow gamers have been notoriously tough to obtain through the years, here is an opportunity to check a tough one off of your wantlist.
