Lot #68

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Kevin Stevens during the 1992-93 NHL season. This Brockton, MA native spent 4 years playing his college hockey 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 suffered 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 the great 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.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the NHL’s 100-year Stanley Cup anniversary patch. The collar on this gamer has been custom vented for Stevens by the team. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, trauma, heavy inner pilling and no less than 20 team-sewn repairs. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Stevens wearing this exact jersey during the 1992-93 season. Stevens was brilliant while wearing this sweater throughout the 1992-93 season. He struck for 55 goals and added 56 assists for 111 points while amassing 177 PIMS in the process, and for his efforts earned a 2nd team NHL All Star selection and his final trip to the NHL All Star Game. The Pens looked poised to win their 3rd consecutive Stanley Cup until Kevin went down with a career altering injury during the 1993 Stanley Cup Playoffs. A hammered, customized, photo matched offering complete with the NHL’s 100-year Stanley Cup anniversary patch hailing from glory years of the Lemieux era.
