Description
2001-02 Vyacheslav Kozlov Sabres Game Worn Jersey - 9/11 Memorial - Team Letter
Lot #65

This white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Slava Kozlov during the 2001-02 NHL season. Kozlov began his NHL career with the Red Wings in 1991-92. After 10 seasons and multiple Stanley Cups in Hockeytown, Kozlov moved onto Buffalo for a year before joining the Thrashers where he spent the last 6 seasons. Slava has nearly 350 goals and better than 800 points during his productive career.

These specially designed jerseys were worn during the home opener at Madison Square Garden on October 7th 2001. This was the first regular season game held at the Garden following the 9/11/2001 tragedy. These gamers were worn in support of the Twin Towers Fund which was established by New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

This spectacular looking example which showcases ‘New York’ diagonally down the front, shows fine game use which consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, washed out bloodstains and inner pilling. On the back is a black sharpie signature in Kozlov’s own hand. This historic and attractive sweater will be forever tied to one of the countries darkest days. This jersey will be accompanied by a Sabres team letter.
