2000-01 Markus Naslund Vancouver Canucks Game Worn Jersey - "Hockey Fights Cancer" - NHL/NHLPA Letters
Lot #174

This road black knit gamer by Koho was worn by Markus Naslund during the 2000-01 NHL season. The Pittsburgh Penguins drafted Naslund in the 1st round of the 1991 NHL entry draft. He began his career in Pittsburgh, playing alongside the likes of Lemieux and Jagr before a deadline deal in 1995-96 sent him packing to Vancouver. Markus made his home in the Great Northwest for a dozen seasons before most recently taking his act to Broadway. Upon leaving Vancouver he was the team’s all-time leader in goals and points. To his credit are nearly 400 goals and 900 points to go along with a handful of NHL All Star game appearances. The 2002-03 NHL season was a special one for Naslund. He netted career highs in goals with 48, assists with 56 and points with 104. In recognition of this fine season, Naslund won the Lester B. Pearson Trophy that is awarded to the NHL’s outstanding player. Markus was named 1st Team NHL All Star at Left Wing in 3 consecutive seasons from 2002-04. He officially announced his retirement from the NHL following the 2008-09 season.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. Sewn to the right breast is the Hockey Fights Cancer patch. The game wear on this sweater is solid consisting of stick and slash marks, numerous board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, a salted fight strap whose snaps are showing light rusting, inner pilling and a two-plus inch long team-sewn repair on the right shoulder. On the back player number is a black sharpie signature in Naslund’s own hand. Naslund wore this gamer during his first of three consecutive 40-goal seasons. This spectacular jersey was won in the 2001 Hockey Fights Cancer On-Line Charity Auction for the price of $4981.00; an official NHL letter confirming this fact will accompany your purchase. An NHLPA letter will also accompany this jersey.
