This white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Jay Bouwmeester during the 2005-06 NHL season. Jay was the 3rd overall selection in the 2002 NHL entry draft by the Florida Panthers, the team where he spent the first 6 seasons of his NHL career. This Alberta native went home when he signed a deal with the Calgary Flames prior to the 2009-10 season. This budding star already has 2 NHL All Star game appearances in tow and the Flames are banking on more to come. Also of note is Jay’s contribution to Team Canada where he has represented his country in numerous World Championships, the 2004 World Cup of Hockey and the 2006 Olympics.
The game wear on this 1st set sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling.
