1992-93 Mick Vukota New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey
Lot #37
This road blue air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Mick Vukota during the 1992-93 NHL season. After battling his way through junior hockey in the WHL, Vukota made his NHL debut in 1987-88 with the New York Islanders. Mick would spend the first 10 years of his 11-year NHL career with the Islanders where he served as the team’s enforcer. Vukota finished up his career with stops in Tampa Bay and Montreal. This enforcer took on all comers and ended his career with a resounding 2071 PIMS in just 574 games played! His single season best PIMS total came in 1991-92 when he tallied 293 PIMS.

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 due to a Dale Hunter cheap shot. The Isles fought on and squared off against the Stanley Cup favorite Pittsburgh Penguins. They found themselves on the road in game 7, and in overtime, dethroned the two-time defending Stanley Cup Champs in 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 consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, material pulls and inner pilling. The fight strap on this gamer has been heavily customized for Vukota by the team and has seen plenty of use. Mick amassed 216 PIMS during the Islanders Cinderella season, wearing this sweater while valiantly defending his teammates during road games that memorable year.
