1988-89 Kevin Stevens Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey
Lot #37
This road black knit gamer by CCM and Century Sports was worn by Kevin Stevens during the 1988-89 NHL season, his 2nd year in the league. This Brockton Massachusetts native spent 4 years playing at Boston College before embarking on his NHL career that began with a 16-game stint in Pittsburgh in 1987-88. Kevin excelled for much of his 8 years in the Steel City, before an injury changed the face of his star laden career. A bad head injury during the 1993 playoffs, as the Pens were making a run at a 3rd straight Stanley Cup, left Kevin and his Penguins never quite the same. During his time in Pittsburgh this dynamic power forward had consecutive seasons of 40, 54, 55 and 41 Goals. He rung up lofty points totals of 123 and 111 in his two finest seasons and established himself as one of hockey’s premiere Left Wings. Never one to shy away from confrontation, Stevens tabbed a career high of 254 PIMS for Pittsburgh in 1991-92. His 30 goals and 61 points in 45 playoff games during the Pens back-to-back Cup wins are legendary. During his career, Kevin captured those 2 Stanley Cups, played in 3 NHL All Star games and was 3-times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star at Left Wing while at times playing alongside Mario Lemieux.

The mid 90’s began a tough journey for Stevens that took him thru Boston, LA, New York, Philadelphia and finally back to Pittsburgh where his career came to an end in 2002. Though a gifted scorer pre-injury, Kevin also played with an edge as evidenced by his 1470 PIMS in 874 games, yet another total that became very tempered post injury.

The 1988-89 season saw Steven’s partake in 24 regular season games and another 11 in the playoffs. It was during this season that Stevens cemented his place on the Penguins roster as he netted 12 goals in his 24 regular season games and then added 10 points in his 11-playoff contests. The game wear on this 2nd year sweater is solid and 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, pulls and heavy pilling. A wonderful offering that was worn during Kevin’s sophomore season and one that will please any serious Penguins collector.
