Description
Mid-Late 1980's New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey - Player #1 - NOBR - Attributed to Jeff Hackett
Lot #423

This road bliue knit gamer by CCM and Syosset Sports was worn during pre-season and or training camp circa the mid to late 1980’s. The Islanders drafted Jeff Hackett in 1987 and he wore the player number 1 for the team, making it likely that this was his first road NHL jersey. The New York Islanders selected Hackett in the 2nd round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. Jeff broke the Islanders lineup in 1988-89 and spent a couple of seasons with the team before joining the San Jose Sharks where he spent 2 more years. Hackett joined the Chicago Blackhawks in 1993-94 and spent the next 5+ seasons with the club. During that span, Jeff put up some terrific statistical seasons that included consecutive GAA’s of 2.38, 2.40, 2.16 and a 2.20 in 1997-98 while playing in a career best 58 games. Early in the 1998-99 season, the Hawks and Habs pulled off a blockbuster that had Hackett and Weinrich going to Montreal in exchange for Thibault and Manson. Jeff would spend most of the next 5 seasons with the Canadiens where, in his early years with the club, he continued his strong play between the pipes before eventually finishing his career with stints in Boston and Philadelphia.

Sewn into the collar of this vintage gamer is the born on date. The game wear on this sweater is on the lighter side and consists of stick and puck marks and inner pilling.
