Description
Pat Lafontaine New York Islanders Authentic Jersey
Lot #264
This blue jersey was manufactured by CCM. The New York Islanders selected Lafontaine with the 3rd overall pick in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. A regrettable string of unfortunate injuries struck Pat’s career in its prime and ultimately cost him what would surely have been very lofty career totals. Pat spent 8 years on Long Island before a trade sent him to Buffalo for the 1991-92 season. He spent 6 seasons with the Sabres and one final year with the New York Rangers before announcing his retirement.

Despite the injury-shortened career, Pat still managed seven 40-goal seasons including two of 50 or more. His 148 points in the 1992-93 campaign was one of the decade’s highest totals. When injury forced him into retirement, he took with him 468 career goals and over 1000 career points. LaFontaine was a winner of the Bill Masterton trophy for the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Pat was a staple in the NHL All Star game during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s as he blossomed into one of the sport’s biggest stars. LaFontaine was one of the classiest players of his generation and was deservingly awarded with an induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

This New York Islanders, size 56, authentic jersey has the player name “Lafontaine” on the back. The player number “16” is on both sleeves and the back. The alternate Captain’s “A” is on the left breast.
