Jim Culhane 1991-92 Capital District Islanders AHL Home White #25 CCM/Maska Ultrafil sz. 54.  All sewn on, blue on orange name and numbers (NYI had only blue names).  Also PHPA  embroidered 25th anniversary patch sewn on front.  CCM embroidered into hem in blue, blue, blue pattern.  Fight strap shows little/no use.  A couple of small holes to go along with countless small hack marks along arms and stomach area of jersey.  Jersey shows signs of extreme stretching along the triceps area on both sleeves.  Overall, jersey shows moderate wear.  From what I remember, CDI started the year with their NYI preseason jerseys (with training camp #’s), before switching to these.  Hence, the lighter wear and reports of different jersey numbers while researching this edition of CDI.  ACQ: DTG, Spring 2002
