Was Bill Lindsay wearing these socks during the miracle run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 1996? Possibly! At the very least, he was wearing them that season. Either Lindsay or a trainer modified these socks to fit him better; notice the torn edge at the top. At the time, socks for hockey players came in one size and if you were shorter than about 6’2″, they went too far up the leg. Lindsay, at 6’0″, cut these down to size and headed out for some of the most memorable games in Panthers history.
