2000-01 Peter Forsberg Colorado Avalanche Game Worn Jersey – “2001 Colorado All Star” – Stanley Cup Season – All Star Season
Lot #106

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Peter Forsberg during the 2000-01 Stanley Cup winning season. The Philadelphia Flyers selected Forsberg with the 6th overall pick in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. He soon became the necessary piece that pried Eric Lindros away from the Quebec Nordiques in one of the decade’s blockbuster trades. Forsberg played a lone season with the Nordiques prior to moving west with the franchise to Colorado. He would spend the next 9 seasons wearing the Avalanche team colors during which time he won a couple of Stanley Cups. Forsberg later went on to play for the Philadelphia Flyers and Nashville Predators before spending time in Europe and eventually returning to Colorado where he ended his career in 2010-11.

Forsberg was three times a 1st Team NHL All Star at Center and played in five NHL All Star Games. He was the winner of the Calder Trophy as the Rookie of the Year in 1994-95 while also capturing the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s scoring leader and the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s MVP in 2002-03. Internationally, he represented his native Sweden in numerous World Championships, two World Cups of Hockey and four Olympics! Sadly, Forsberg battled serious injuries throughout much of his career that limited him to 708 games played. During that time, he had rung up 249 goals and 636 assists for a total of 885 points. In 151 playoff games, Forsberg lit the lamp 64 times and added 107 assists for a total of 171 points. He was among the most talented players of his generation and, were it not for his battles with injury, his career totals would be significantly more impressive. Forsberg was rightfully inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the class of 2014.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the right breast is the Colorado 2001 NHL All Star Game patch. The game wear on this size 58 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling.

Despite battling injury, Forsberg would again finish on the Top 10 Leaderboard for assists (62) and points (89) while playing in just 73 regular season contests and going +23 during the 2000-01 season. Peter and the Avalanche carried the momentum all the way into the spring as they fought their way to a 2nd Stanley Cup Championship. A spectacular offering worn during a Stanley Cup winning season complete with the All Star Game patch and the coveted letter of honor, choice!
