1993-94 Alexei Kasatonov Anaheim Mighty Ducks Game Worn Jersey - Inaugural Season - Team Letter
Lot #86

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Alexei Kasatonov during the 1993-94 NHL season. After spending a dozen years patrolling the blueline and clearing the crease for the former Soviet Union, Kasatonov came to the NHL and joined the New Jersey Devils in 1989-90. His career in Russia is legendary. Alexei formed one of the all-time great defensive pairings; as throughout the decade of the 1980’s he skated alongside Slava Fetisov. Kasatonov captured 2 Olympic Gold Medals, 5 World Championships, 11 National titles and a couple of Canada Cups. He was a USSR 1st Team All Star for 8 consecutive seasons spanning 1981-1988.

Alexei joined the Devils at 30-years of age, already with plenty of mileage on his skates. He would spend 4 years with the Devils before Anaheim snagged him away in the 1993 expansion draft. After a year in Anaheim, Alexei next spent 2 years in Boston before returning home to Russia for a final season. While in the NHL, Kasatonov provided solid defense and timely offense, ringing up back-to-back double-digit goal seasons with the Devils. In 1994 Kasatonov was selected to the NHL All Star team representing the Mighty Ducks.

Kasatonov wore this beautiful sweater during the Mighty Ducks 1st NHL season. The game wear consists of stick marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, inner pilling and 4 team-sewn repairs. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Anaheim Mighty Ducks Inaugural season game worn jersey tagging. An important sweater worn by this legendary blueliner during his only NHL All Star season. This jersey will be accompanied by a Ducks team letter.
