1988-89 Gord Dineen Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey
Lot #114

This home white knit gamer by CCM and Century Sports was worn by Gord Dineen during the 1988-89 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected Dineen in the 2nd round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. He began his NHL career with the Islanders at the tail end of their early 1980’s dynasty, playing in a couple of games in 1982-83. In 1983-84 Gord earned a regular spot on the Isles blueline and he spent a total of 6 seasons in the Islanders colors before being dealt to the Minnesota North Stars in 1987-88. After parts of 2 seasosn with the Stars, Gord joined the Pittsburgh Penguins for parts of 4 seasons during which time his team won 2 Stanley Cups. Dineen finished up his NHL career with a couple of years in Ottawa and a final season with the Islanders. He then spent 6 more years patrolling the IHL bluelines, predominantly as a member of the Grizzlies. Since his playing days ended, Gord has been working behind the bench as a coach for more than a decade, having spent the past 8 years with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies.

The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, a fight strap that has lost the battle to salt and rust, inner pilling and a handful of team-sewn repairs. This vintage example hails from the 2nd half of the 1988-89 season, which features the crests with a gold toe skating Penguin and was worn on home ice during Dineen’s first year in Pittsburgh.
