This black alternate air-knit gamr by Koho was worn by John Leclair during the 2001-02 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Leclair in the 2nd round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. With better than 400 goals to his credit, Leclair clearly established himself as one of the best power forwards of the 1990’s. Leclair, who is a St. Albans, Vermont native, graduated from the University of Vermont in 1991 and began his NHL career with the Canadiens in 1990-91. During his second full season in the league, John’s timely playoff scoring helped lead the underdog Canadiens to the 1993 Stanley Cup championship. John partook in numerous NHL All Star games and was 5-times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star at Left Wing. After his trade to Philadelphia in 1994, Leclair formed a terrorizing duo on the Legion of Doom alongside Eric Lindros for much of the remainder of the 1990’s, wreaking havoc on opponents. He tabbed 50 goals in 3 consecutive seasons and followed those up with a couple of 40-goal years before a back injury took its toll. John joined the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2005-06 and played two final seasons before retiring in 2007. Leclair represented Team USA in the 1996 World Cup of hockey, where he was voted a World Cup All Star, as well as in the Olympics. Also to his credit are 2 Bud Ice Plus/Minus awards. Leclair was inducted into the Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame on November 20, 2014.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this size 58 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, a salted fight strap and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Leclair wearing this exact jersey during the 2001-02 NHL season. A nice photo matched offering, complete with letter of honor of this Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Famer.
