Other stops included Vancouver, Philadelphia, Florida, 5 seasons in Phoenix, Tampa and Los Angeles. Sean played in 3 NHL All Star games.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this size 54 Goalie cut sweater consists of stick and puck marks, goal post paint transfer and pilling.

This jersey will be accompanied by a Devils team letter.
