2000-01 Kevin Stevens Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #156
This road orange air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Kevin Stevens during the 2000-01 NHL season. This Brockton Massachusetts native spent 4 years playing at Boston College before embarking on his NHL career that began with a 16-game stint in Pittsburgh in 1987-88. Kevin excelled for much of his 8 years in the Steel City, before an injury changed the face of his star laden career. A bad head injury during the 1993 playoffs, as the Pens were making a run at a 3rd straight Stanley Cup, left Kevin and his Penguins never quite the same. During his time in Pittsburgh this dynamic power forward had consecutive seasons of 40, 54, 55 and 41 Goals. He rung up lofty points totals of 123 and 111 in his two finest seasons and established himself as one of hockey’s premiere Left Wings. Never one to shy away from a confrontation, Stevens tabbed a career high of 254 PIMS for Pittsburgh in 1991-92. His 30 goals and 61 points in 45 playoff games during the Pens back-to-back Cup wins are legendary. During his career, Kevin captured those 2 Stanley Cups, played in 3 NHL All Star games and was 3-times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star at Left Wing while at times playing alongside Mario Lemieux.

The mid 90’s began a tough journey for Stevens that took him thru Boston, LA, New York, Philadelphia and finally back to Pittsburgh where his career came to an end in 2002. Though a gifted scorer pre-injury, Kevin also played with an edge as evidenced by his 1470 PIMS in 874 games, yet another total that became very tempered post injury.

This sweater was worn during Kevin’s only season in Philadelphia, a year that saw him play in 23 games for the Flyers prior to being traded to the Penguins in January of 2001. The sleeves on this gamer have been custom shortened for Stevens by the team. The game wear on this size 58 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, a good many board burns, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. A nice example from the shortest leg of this All Star wingers NHL journey and a tough one to obtain for Flyers completists.
