1995-96 Brett Lindros New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey Fisherman Crest - Photo Match
Lot #107
This road blue air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Brett Lindros during the 1995-96 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected Lindros with the 9th overall pick in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. Brett, who is the younger brother of Eric, stood at 6’4” and played an intimidating brand of hockey. His rough and tumble power forward style cost him dearly as he had his playing career cut short by post concussion syndrome during just his 2nd NHL season leaving us all to wonder what might have been had he remained healthy. Brett’s NHL career began when the Islanders called him up from Kingston of the OHL during the 1994-95 season. Brett had played in 26 games in the OHL that season and had already scored 24 goals and 47 points. During his 33 game rookie call up, Lindros recorded 100 PIMS in 33 games played while wearing the traditional Islanders uniform.



The 1995-96 season saw the Islanders experiment by going to new colors and a Fisherman crest. Lindros would play in just 18 games where he racked up 47 PIMS before he succumbed to post concussion syndrome, thus ending his career. Offered here is Brett’s road jersey from that fateful season. The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, overall trauma, stitch pops, heavy inner pilling, a salted and custom shortened fight strap and a dozen and a half team-sewn repairs! Shown above are some  stunning photo matches of Lindros wearing this exact jersey during the 1995-96 season. The Fisherman crested era lasted merely two seasons on the Island. Now 20 years removed from the ice, as the years continue to pass us by, these short-lived gamers are becoming increasingly more difficult to come by. This battered and photo matched example was worn by the Islanders then 20-year old power forward in what turned out to be his abbreviated final NHL season, thus presenting a very compelling offering.
