1998-99 Paul Coffey Hurricanes Game Worn Jersey
Lot #189

This item comes from the personal collection of longtime New England/Hartford/Carolina equipment man Skip Cunningham.

This road red air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Paul Coffey in his first season as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes. Coffey is second to only Ray Bourque in all-time goals 396, assists 1135 and points 1531 scored by a defenseman. These incredible totals rank him 5th on the all-time assist list and as the 10th highest scoring player in league history at the time of this writing. Coffey’s playoff acumen is no less impressive having tallied nearly 200 career playoff points, which also places him among the all-time elite. Coffey has (8) 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star selections to his credit. He played in an astounding 14 NHL All Star games. His hardware includes 3 Norris trophies as leagues best defenseman and 4 Stanley Cup championships.

The part he played in the Edmonton Oilers dynasty was invaluable and helped form the deadliest offensive machine ever put on the ice. His single season record for a defenseman of 48 goals, recorded in 1985-86 will likely never be topped. Paul is a most deserving Hall of Famer.

In the hem of this gamer is the official Hurricanes team stamp. This sweater has been customized to better fit Coffey’s frame, with the seams on both sides having been taken in. The game use consists of stick marks, board burns, pulls and inner pilling.
