1995-96 Andrei Vasilyev New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey Alternate Fisherman Crest - Photo Match
Lot #191

This road blue air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Andrei Vasilyev during the 1995-96 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected Vasilyev in the 11th round of the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. This Russian native began his NHL career with the Islanders in 1994-95. Andrei played for parts of 3 seasons with the Islanders and then briefly with the Phoenix Coyotes before returning to Europe at the end of the decade.

The 1995-96 season saw the Islanders experiment by going to new colors and a Fisherman crest. The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, fine pilling on the lower part of the right wrist and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Vasilyev wearing this exact jersey during the 1995-96 season. The Fisherman era lasted merely two seasons on the Island. Now more than 20 years removed from the ice, these short-lived gamers are becoming increasingly more difficult to obtain as collectors realize their value. A beautiful photo matched Fisherman crested sweater!
