1998-99 Dale Hunter Avalanche Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #162

This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Dale Hunter during his final NHL season, for his final team the Colorado Avalanche. In a deadline deal, Dale was traded by the Capitals to the Avalanche where he spent his final 12 regular season and 19 playoff games. Hunter is the only player in the history of the NHL to have tallied 300 goals, 1000 points and 3500 PIMS. These impressive numbers are sure to garner consideration for Hall of Fame induction in years to come.

Hunter’s leadership abilities will never be questioned. He served as team Captain for both the Quebec Nordiques and the Washington Capitals during his 19-year NHL career. Dale ranks 2nd on the all-time PIM list with 3565, trailing only Tiger Williams. For good measure he spent another 729 minutes in the sin bin during the playoffs. Hunter will be remembered as one of the all-time great instigators, always finding a way to get under the skin of his opponents, while still possessing the talent to light the lamp.

The game wear on this sweater consists of many heavy stick marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes and fine pilling. You can tell that Dale put it on the line while wearing this gamer as he made one final regular season push geared towards winning the trophy that mattered most yet eluded him throughout his career, the Stanley Cup. This jersey will be accompanied by a Avalanche team letter.
