2000-01 Joe Thornton Boston Bruins Game Worn Jersey Alternate - Career High 37-Goal Season
Lot #98
This gold alternate air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Joe Thornton during the 2000-01 NHL season. The Boston Bruins selected Thornton with the 1st overall pick in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. Thornton began his NHL career with the Bruins in 1997-98 at the age of 18. It was during Joe’s 8th season in Boston that the franchise that had chosen him 1st overall decided to trade him to San Jose. Ironically, Joe was off to a quick start that year with the Bruins, a trend that accelerated after arriving in the Shark Tank. The 2005-06 season saw Thornton assist on 92 goals and score 114 points, both career best totals that were good enough to capture the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP as well as the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s leading scorer. This was the first time that such honors were awarded to a player that played for two different teams in a season. Joe has spent the past 9 seasons with the Sharks. In a career that has thus far spanned about 1200 games, Thornton is averaging about a point per game over the course of his 16-year NHL career. Joe is 3 times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and has played in 6 NHL All Star games. On the international scene, Thornton has represented Team Canada in the World Championships, the World Cup of Hockey and a couple of Olympics.



Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this size 58 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, stitch pops and inner pilling. Thornton netter a career best 37 goals during the 2000-01 season while wearing this sweater. A well-worn exemplar of this perennial All Star that sports a coveted letter of honor.
