1997-98 Warren Luhning New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey - Rookie - Photo Match - Team Letter
Lot #166
This road blue air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Warren Luhning during the 1997-98 NHL season, his rookie year. The New York Islanders selected Luhning in the 4th round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. After starring at the University of Michigan and leading them to the 1996 NCAA Championship, Luhning began his NHL career in 1997-98 with the Islanders. Warren spent parts of 2 seasons with New York and then one final year with the Dallas Stars before injuries forced him into early retirement.

The game wear on this size 58 goalie cut sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, pulls, pilling and a handful of team-sewn repairs. Penned in black sharpie on the inside of the crest are the year and the equipment manager’s signature. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Luhning wearing this exact jersey during his rookie season! This jersey came directly from the New York Islanders team sets that we purchased from the club back in the late 1990’s. It is one of the scant few Luhning sweaters known to exist in the hobby due to his extremely brief NHL career. This jersey will be accompanied by an Islanders team letter.
