Butch Goring New York Islanders Sher-Wood Game Used Stick Team Signed Including Bossy, Gillies, Nystrom & Tonelli - Stanley Cup Season
Lot #495
This Sher-Wood PMP 5030 hockey stick was game used by Butch Goring while playing for the New York Islanders during the 1980-81 Stanley Cup season. The Los Angeles Kings selected Goring in the 5th round of the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft. Goring joined the Kings in 1969-70 and remained with the franchise for 11 seasons. While with LA, Butch scored 30 goals on 4 different occasions and won the 1978 Bill Masterton and Lady Byng Trophies. The Kings dealt Butch to the New York Islanders at the deadline in 1979-80. This trade proved to be one of the most significant deals in hockey history. It was Goring’s arrival in New York that literally helped kick start the Islanders dynasty. Goring and the Islanders went to the Stanley Cup Finals for five consecutive years after his arrival and they walked away with 4 straight Stanley Cups.



Butch was named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy in 1981 as playoff MVP. Midway thru the 1984-85 campaign, Goring was dealt to the Boston Bruins where he spent a half season before announcing his retirement. During his 16-year NHL career, this NHL All Star scored 375 goals and 888 points. Goring was a deadly penalty killer who ranked in the top 10 in shorthanded goals 9 different seasons. His 40 career shorthanded goals rank him 5th on the NHL’s all-time list.

This Sher-Wood hockey stick has the player name “Goring” stamped on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. Butch has autographed the stick on the side along with 16 of his teammates including Morrow, Nystrom, Howatt, Bourne, Gillies, Sutter, Bossy, Tonelli and Resch, dating the stick to the 1980-81 Stanley Cup winning season.
