This blue canvas equipment bag was used by Islanders Hall of Fame Defenseman Denis Potvin. The New York Islanders selected Potvin with the 1st overall pick in the 1973 NHL Amateur Draft. He began his career on Long Island in 1973-74 and won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year in the spring of 1974. Potvin spent his entire 15-year NHL career as a member of the Islanders. During that time he played in 1060 games and scored 310 goals and 1052 points. His playoff totals are no less impressive with 164 points in 185 games played. Potvin recorded three different 30-Goal seasons and also eclipsed the 100-point mark during his illustrious career. Denis is considered one of the NHL’s all-time great defenseman. He won three Norris Trophies from 1976 thru 1979 and retired as the NHL’s all-time leader in goals, assists and points among defenseman, both in the regular season and playoffs. Denis was a 7-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star who appeared in 9 NHL All Star Games. Potvin became the Captain of the Islanders in 1979-80 and immediately thereafter led the team to 5 consecutive Stanley Cup Finals, hoisting the Cup 4 straight times from 1980-83 as the team earned dynasty status in the process. Internationally, Potvin represented Team Canada in the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cups.

This blue equipment bag has the player number “5” on two sides and the NY Islanders team name on the other two sides. This fresh to the hobby equipment bag is still in great working order and comes directly from the personal collection of Terrence Murphy, choice!
