1998 Olympics Mark Recchi Team Canada Game Worn Jersey - Team Canada Letter
Lot #142
This red air-knit, knit and mesh gamer by Bauer was worn by Mark Recchi during the 1998 Olympics in Nagano Japan. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Recchi in the 4th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Recchi began his NHL career in 1988-89 as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He would soon after team with Mario and company to capture the 1991 Stanley Cup, the first in franchise history. At the trading deadline of the following season, as the Pens were embarking on their 2nd Stanley Cup run, Rex was dealt to the Flyers in exchange for Rick Tocchet.

Mark would next represent Philadelphia for parts of 4 seasons where he teamed with a young Eric Lindros to form one of the deadliest duos in the sport, before heading to the Montreal Canadiens in yet another blockbuster deal. Following 5 years with Les Habitants, Recchi returned to Philly where he played for another 6 seasons. His next stop was back to where it all began, the Pittsburgh Penguins. However a deadline deal in 2006 proved fruitful for the veteran winger, as he captured his 2nd Stanley Cup while on loan to the Carolina Hurricanes. Since leaving the Pens in 07-08, Rex has played for the Thrashers, Lightning and most recently the Boston Bruins for his last 3 seasons, where in his final game he hoisted the Stanley Cup for a 3rd time. In a career that spanned 1652 games, Recchi tallied 1533 points and lit the lamp a resounding 577 times. Rex is 5th all time in NHL games played. He played in 7 NHL All Star games and was named 2nd Team NHL All Star at right wing in 1992. A spot in the Hockey Hall of Fame no doubt awaits this 50-goal sniper upon eligibility.

The game wear on this size 56 team Canada Olympic sweater consists of a couple of handfuls of stick marks and some inner pilling. The 1998 games were Recchi’s only taste of the Olympics and as such creates a wonderful opportunity to secure a rare Olympic gamer from this soon to be Hall of Famer! This jersey will be accompanied by a Team Canada letter.
