This home red air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Jeff Friesen during “Mike Vernon Night” on February 6th 2007. Friesen was the San Jose Sharks 1st round selection in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. He began his career in 1994-95 with the Sharks, and spent 7 seasons with the club before moving south to Anaheim. Other stops have included New Jersey, where he won a Stanley Cup in 2003, Washington and Calgary where Friesen completed his NHL career.
Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Mike Vernon patch. The sleeves of this gamer have been custom shortened to Friesen’s specs by the team. On this night in front of the hometown fans, the Calgary Flames made Vernon the 2nd player in team history to have his number retired and raised to the rafters. Friesen, while wearing this jersey, earned 1st star of the game honors as he broke a scoreless tie at 15:57 of the 2nd period. The game wear on this sweater is light. Shown above are a couple of photo matches of Friesen wearing this exact jersey during “Mike Vernon Night”. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Flames team letter.
