1993-94 Manon Rheaume Tampa Bay Lightning Team Issued Jersey
Lot #81

This road black air-knit jersey by CCM was issued for use by Manon Rheaume during the 1993-94 NHL season. Rheaume famously became the first woman to play in a major North American professional sports league when she stood between the pipes for the IHL’s Atlanta Knights during the 1992-93 season. She signed a contract with the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992 and appeared in pre-season NHL games in 1992 and 1993. Her minor-pro career spanned the IHL, WCHL and ECHL. Rheaume represented Team Canada’s women’s team and won Gold Medals at the 1992 and 1994 IIHF World Championships. She also backstopped Team Canada to a Silver Medal at the 1998 Olympics.

This 2nd set size 56 sweater is game issued and therefore shows no signs of game use. On the inside hem is the official Tampa Bay Lightning game worn jersey and set stamp. A nice piece of sports history.
