This white air-knit jersey by Reebok was worn by Mark Messier during the celebration for the 1984-85 Edmonton Oilers being named the Centennial’s Greatest Team. Messier made his debut in 1978-79 in the WHA where he played for the Indianapolis Racers and Cincinnati Stingers. Following the merger with the NHL, Messier made his NHL debut in 1979-80 with the Oilers where he would star for 12 seasons. During his time with the Oilers, Mark won five Stanley Cups and became recognized as one of the sports greats. In 1991-92, Messier made his New York Rangers debut and helped lead the team to the President’s Trophy in his first season. Merely three years into his tenure, Messier helped the 1994 Rangers to their first and only Stanley Cup since 1940. Following 6 seasons on Broadway, Messier joined the Vancouver Canucks for three seasons before returning to the Rangers for the final four years of his career. All told, Messier played in 25 NHL seasons.

Messier’s legendary accomplishments include 694 goals - 9th best of all-time, 1193 assists - third best of all time and 1887 points - third best of all-time. Messier’s playoff totals rank him second best of all-time behind only Wayne Gretzky with 109 goals, 186 assists and 295 points. Messier is a 6-time Stanley Cup Champion, was the winner of two Hart Memorial Trophies, two Ted Lindsay Awards, and a Conn Smythe Trophy. Messier played in 15 NHL All Star Games and was five-times named 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star. Messier was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame with the class of 2007.
