1998-99 Joe Nieuwendyk Dallas Stars Game Worn Jersey - Stanley Cup Season - Conn Smythe Season Team Letter
Lot #113

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Joe Nieuwendyk during the 1998-99 Stanley Cup winning season. The Calgary Flames selected Nieuwendyk in the 2nd round of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at Cornell University, Nieuwendyk began his NHL career with the Flames in 1986-87 and was the 1987-88 Calder Trophy winner as the NHL’s rookie of the year. His rookie season was one for the record books as Joe netted 51 goals and 92 points. He followed it up with another 51-goal season the following year as he helped the Flames to their 1st Stanley Cup championship in team history. Joe would score 45 goals in each of the next two seasons, which got him off to one of the fastest starts in pursuit of #500 in league history.

After 9 seasons with Calgary, the Flames decided to deal Joe to the Dallas Stars in exchange for youngster Jarome Iginla. Joe would spend 7 seasons in Dallas and reach the Cup Finals twice, walking away with his 2nd ring. He then landed in New Jersey at the deadline of the 2001-02 season and thus only played one full year in New Jersey. His one complete season at the Meadowlands was a special one as it saw Joe net Goal #500 and capture his 3rd Stanley Cup title. He ended his career after brief stops in Toronto and Florida. After 20 years of service, Nieuwendyk had registered 3 Stanley Cup titles, 564 Goals and 1126 points. He was the winner of the 1994-95 King Clancy Memorial Trophy as well as the coveted Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP in 1998-99. Joe played in 4 NHL All Star games and represented Team Canada in both the 1998 and 2002 Olympics. He was deservingly inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the class of 2011.

Removed from the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. The 1998-99 season saw the Dallas Stars win their first and only Stanley Cup Championship, led by Nieuwendyk who won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP on the strength of 11 goals and 10 assists for 21 points over 23 grueling playoff games. A well-worn example by this Hall of Famer during the only Stanley Cup season in franchise history. This jersey will be accompanied by a Stars team letter.
