1992-93 Marty McInnis New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #123
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Marty McInnis during the 1992-93 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected McInnis in the 8th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. This Weymouth, MA native played his college hockey at Boston College before joining the Islanders in 1992. McInnis would spend 6 seasons on Long Island before joining the Calgary Flames. After parts of 3 years in Calgary, Marty played in Anaheim for parts of 4 seasons and finished up his career with the Boston Bruins. All told this winger spent a dozen seasons in the NHL. Most recently, McInnis could be found behind the bench of his alma mater, Boston College.

The 1992-93 season was a special one for the Islanders who were then a decade removed from past glory. This Cinderella story carried the Islanders into the playoffs where they defeated the favored Washington Capitals in a memorable series that saw them lose Pierre Turgeon, their leading scorer thanks to a Dale Hunter cheap shot. The Isles fought on and squared off against the Stanley Cup favorites, where, on the road in game 7, they dethroned the 2-time defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins, one of the biggest playoff upsets of the decade. The dream came to an end in the Wales Conference Finals as the Islanders fell to the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Montreal Canadiens. This season will forever retain a place in all Islanders fans hearts.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the NHL’s 100-year Stanley Cup anniversary patch. The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, exterior pilling and heavy inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of McInnis wearing this exact jersey during the 1992-93 season. A beautiful photo matched and patched gamer from an important and beloved season in Islanders lure.
