Description
1996-97 Kenny Jonsson New York Islanders Game Issued Jersey Alternate - Team Letter
Lot #241
This home white alternate air-knit gamer by CCM was issued for use by Kenny Jonsson during the 1996-97 NHL season. The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Jonsson in the 1st round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. This native of Angelholm, Sweden began his NHL career with the Leafs in 1994-95. During the following season the Islanders acquired Jonsson from Toronto. Kenny spent the remainder of his 10-year NHL career calling Long Island his home. Jonsson represented Sweden in numerous World Championships, the inaugural World Cup of Hockey and in 3 Olympics!


This size 56 goalie cut alternate appears not to have made it into game action. On the inside crest is a black sharpie signature in the hand of the Isles equipment manager that dates this jersey 96-97. This jersey was part of the runs of NY Islanders team sets that we acquired from the team in the late 1990’s and it has remained as part of a single owner private collection ever since. Intriguing fresh item of a short-lived style in New York Islanders history. This jersey will be accompanied by an Islanders team letter.
