1995-96 Kevin Stevens Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey
Lot #173

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Kevin Stevens during the 1995-96 NHL season. The Los Angeles Kings selected Stevens in the 6th round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. This Brockton, MA native spent four years playing college hockey at Boston College before embarking on an 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 a head injury altered his career. During the 1993 playoffs, as the Pens were making a run at a 3rd straight Stanley Cup, Stevens suffered a serious head injury that left him and his team 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 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 Mario Lemieux.

The mid 90’s began a tough journey for Stevens that took him thru Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and finally back to Pittsburgh where his career came to an end in 2002. Stevens was a gifted scorer pre-injury and also played with an edge as evidenced by his 1470 PIMS in 874 games, a total that became very tempered post injury.

Stevens arrived in Los Angeles on January 25, 1996 after being traded by the Boston Bruins in exchange for Rick Tocchet. The game wear on this 1st set size 56 sweater is on the lighter side as would be expected with stick and slash marks and fine inner pilling most worthy of mention. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Los Angeles Kings game worn jersey and set tagging. Stevens tallied 13 points and 22 PIMS in 20 games during his first season in Los Angeles while wearing this sweater upon his arrival to California.
