This red air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Tuomo Ruutu during the 2006-07 NHL season. The Chicago Blackhawks selected Ruutu with the 9th overall pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. Following a handful of years where he played in his native Finland, Ruutu began his NHL career with the Hawks in 2003-04. He would spend parts of 4 years in the Windy City before a deal sent him to the Carolina Hurricanes where he is now in his 5th year with the club.
Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Garth Brooks patch. This sweater was worn during the January 5th 2007 game against the Nashville Predators at the United Center. Light wear exists as would be expected on a one-gamer. Shown above are a number of photos of Ruutu wearing this exact jersey on January 5th 2007 against the Nashville Predators. Sewn in the hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by an NHL/NHLPA letter.
