1996-97 Derek King New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey - "25-year Anniversary" - Fisherman Logo
Lot #96
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Derek King during the 1996-97 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected King in the 1st round of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. He made his first NHL appearance in 1986-87 with the Islanders and would partake in 11 of his 14 NHL seasons with the team that drafted him. King scored 261 goals and an impressive 612 points over the course of an 830 game NHL career. He scored 30 goals in three consecutive seasons in the early 1990’s; including a career best 40 in 1991-92 with the Islanders.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the right breast is the New York Islanders 25-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is tremendous and consists of numerous stick and slash marks, plenty of board burns, un-repaired burn holes, a bunch of pulls and pilling, a well-used and heavily salted fight strap and some terrific team-sewn repair work. The Fisherman crested era lasted a mere two seasons and as such have become quite a popular item among collectors who continue to put them away. This outstanding example features the smaller replacement crest, a commonality to this desirable set. On the inside of the crest is a black sharpie signature and year designation in the equipment manager’s hand. Further appeal stems from the anniversary patch, which was removed from the majority of these Fishermen crested examples but remains in all-original condition here. A terrific looking, well worn patched example that bears the letter of honor and is surely worthy of inclusion in your collection of tough to acquire styles.
