This grey knit gamer was worn by goaltender Jimmy Waite during the 2007-08 season while playing for the Ingolstadt Panthers of Germany’s DEL. The Chicago Blackhawks selected Waite 8th overall in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. After a couple of years in the QMJHL, Waite joined the Hawks in 1988-89 and began what would be a 22-year professional career. Jimmy’s NHL career spanned 11 seasons. He spent 8 of those years with the Blackhawks, a lone season with the Sharks and a final 2 years with the Phoenix Coyotes. When his NHL days were done, Waite spent a couple of seasons in the AHL and then went to Europe where he wrapped up a 9-year run in the DEL.
There is light but obvious use on this gamer, while there is a Panthers 07-08 game worn jersey patch sewn just above the hem on the left outer hip of this sweater. This jersey will be accompanied by a Ingolstadt Panthers team letter.
