This red air-knit and mesh gamer by SP was worn by Mike Matteucci during the 2003-04 AHL season. Hailing from Trail, BC, this tough nosed defenseman spent 4 seasons at the NCAA’s Lake Superior State before embarking on a 10-year minor league career. Mike’s first 3 seasons in the IHL saw him accumulate better than 250 PIMS per season. In fact, throughout his career there wasn’t a full season that Matteucci didn’t tab a triple digit total of PIMS.
Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The game wear on this sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the official Albany River Rats game worn jersey tagging.
