1997-98 Evgeny Korolev New York Islanders Pre Season Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #299
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Evgeny Korolev during the 1997-98 NHL pre-season. The New York Islanders drafted Korolev in 1996 and then again in 1998 after failing to sign him the previous time. Evgeny finally made his NHL debut with the Islanders in 1999-00. Evgeny played for parts of 3 seasons with the Islanders before returning to his native Russia where he has roamed the bluelines for the past decade, the last handful of years in the KHL.

This jersey originates from the 1996-97 and 1997-98 team sets that we purchased directly from the New York Islanders back in the fall of 1998. The Islanders wore these traditional crested styled jerseys as their alternates during the 1996-97 season and then recycled some of them into their 1997-98 regular season set. The game wear on this all-original sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns and inner pilling. On the inside crest is a black sharpie signature in the hand of the New York Islanders equipment manager. Worn by Korolev as he attempted to make the big squad in the 1997-98 pre-season during his pre-rookie days.
