2001 Alexander Mogilny NHL All Star Game Issued Jersey – “2001 Colorado NHL All Star Game”
Lot #285

This red air-knit jersey by CCM was prepared for use by Alexander Mogilny during the 2001 NHL All Star Game. The Buffalo Sabres selected Mogilny in the 5th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. This gifted Russian born winger made his NHL debut in 1989-90 with the Sabres where he electrified fans for 6 seasons in Buffalo. Mogilny played alongside Hall of Famer Pat Lafontaine for much of his tenure and in 1992-93 he recorded a season for the ages. In 77 games played, Alex registered one of the highest single season goals totals in NHL history as he lit the lamp a resounding 76 times!

After 6 impressive seasons with the Sabres, Mogilny landed in Vancouver where he spent the next 5 seasons. He netted 55 goals in his first year with his new team. A deadline deal in 99-00, from the Canucks to the Devils, proved to be what New Jersey needed as they plowed to a Stanley Cup Championship giving Mogilny his first and only Stanley Cup win. The next season, Mogilny helped land New Jersey back in the Cup Finals where they fell to the Avalanche in a hard-fought 7-game series. Alex would next spend 3 years wearing the Maple Leafs colors before one last trip back to New Jersey in 2005-06. Mogilny was awarded the 2002-03 Lady Byng Trophy, which is awarded for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability. In 16 NHL seasons, Mogilny posted career totals of 473 goals and 1032 points, having left his mark as one of the more feared snipers of his generation. He was twice a 2nd Team NHL All Star at RW and earned the right to play in 4 NHL All Star games. Mogilny was elected to the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame in 2011. Internationally, Alexander represented the Soviet Union in the World Junior Championships, the World Championships and the 1988 Olympics. He represented Russia in the inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey.

Sewn to the right breast of this jersey is the 2001 Colorado NHL All Star Game patch. Sewn to the left shoulder is the Russian Flag. Sewn to the right shoulder is the New Jersey Devils logo. Sewn to the fight strap is the official NHL All Star Game Alpha-numeric patch. Although this was one of the five jerseys prepared for Mogilny, he was unable to play in the All Star Game due to injury.
