Eric Lindros Philadelphia Flyers B&W Louisville Game Worn Gloves Rookie
Lot #726
These black and white TPS hockey gloves by Louisville were game worn by Eric Lindros during the 1992-93 season, his rookie year. Lindros entered the NHL with perhaps as much fanfare as any player in league history. Drafted by Quebec 1st overall in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, Eric refused to play in French Canada and forced the Nordiques into making a draft-day deal. The Philadelphia Flyers paid a kings ransom, which included Peter Forsberg to land this giant talent. He began his career with the Flyers in 1992-93 and took the City of Brotherly Love on his back as hockey took center stage once again in Philadelphia. In only his 3rd year of play, Eric won the Hart Memorial Trophy as NHL MVP and the Lester B Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player. Eric put up gaudy numbers as the leader of the Legion of Doom throughout the 1990’s and led the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1997.

Unfortunately for Flyers fans, his 26 points in 19 playoff games weren’t enough to defeat the eventual champions from the Motor City. Playing such a rough and tumble style had serious consequences for Lindros. He missed parts of virtually every season due to injury, the most serious of which were a series of concussions. After sitting out the entire 2000-01 season, Lindros resumed his career with the Rangers with whom he played for 3 years. A year each in Toronto and Dallas followed before retirement became necessary, putting an end to an exciting career.

In a career filled with what ifs, Lindros played for 13 years in a scant 760 games. During that time he scored 372 goals and 865 points. His 1398 PIMS do not do justice to the rugged style of hockey he played, as he literally ran roughshot over the opposition. Lindros also left his mark on the international world stage, representing Team Canada in the World Championships, the 1991 Canada Cup, the inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey and 3 Olympics!

These black and white Louisville hockey gloves have the player name “Eric Lindros” stitched on the cuff in orange. Lindros only wore Louisville gloves in his rookie season.
