This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Rob Blake during the 2001-02 NHL season. The Los Angeles Kings selected Blake in the 4th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. In an NHL career that spanned 20 seasons, Blake spent 14 of those as a member of the Kings. After playing his award laden college hockey at Bowling Green State University, Blake began his initial 12-year run in LA in 1989-90, playing in 4 games. He soon after became one of the league’s best defenseman and was awarded the Norris Trophy in honor of such for his play in 1997-98. During Rob’s time with the Colorado Avalanche, he won his 1st and only Stanley Cup championship in 2001. His 240 career goals and 777 points are impressive as are his 1679 PIMS. Blake partook in 7 NHL All Star Games and was 4 times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star. On the international stage, Blake represented Team Canada in the World Championships, the inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey and in 3 different Olympics! In fact, Blake earned the honor of best defenseman at the 1998 Olympics as well as the 1997 World Championships. Blake was deservingly inducted to 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”. The game wear on this 3rd set size 58 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, material pulls and inner pilling. Blake scored 16 Goals and 56 Points in 75 regular season games played during the 2001-02 season. For his efforts, he earned a 2nd Team NHL All Star selection and played in the annual NHL All Star game. The Avalanche were the defending Stanley Cup Champions and made a valiant effort at going back-to-back. The Hall of Fame careers of Blake and Chelios intersected in the epic 7 game Western Conference Finals series as the Red Wings ended Colorado’s season en route to their 3rd Stanley Cup title in 6 years. This terrific gamer sports the letter of honor and comes directly from The Chris Chelios Collection.
