This road red air-knit jersey by Nike was worn by Sergei Fedorov during the 1996-97 NHL season. Fedorov finished the 2008-09 campaign with 483 career goals and nearly 1200 points. Just as impressive are his 176 career playoff points in 183 games played, which rank him in the upper echelon all-time in that vaunted category. Sergei has 3 Stanley Cups to his credit and other hardware in tow which include (2) Frank J. Selke trophies as the leagues best defensive forward, a Lester B.Pearson award as the NHL’s outstanding player and a Hart trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player.
This spectacular gamer was worn during the Red Wings 1st Stanley Cup championship season of the modern era. After coming so close in the years prior, Detroit would steamroll the Philadelphia Flyers 4-0 in the Finals that year under the guidance of Scotty Bowman to capture their first Cup since 1955.
Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this sweater is strong having been undoubtedly worn for quite some time during that champuionship season. There are loads and loads of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, team-sewn repair work and fine inner pilling. Both of the wrists have been vented to Sergei’s preferences from that era. On the inside hem is the Detroit Red Wings official game worn jersey tagging. Tremendous gamer from the 1st Cup winning season. This jersey will be accompanied by a Red Wings team letter.
