2002-03 Dany Heatley Atlanta Thrashers Game Worn Jersey -Sophomore Season
Lot #113
This road blue air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Dany Heatley during the 2002-03 NHL season, his 2nd year in the league. The Atlanta Thrashers selected Heatley with the 2nd overall pick in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. He joined the club after only 2 seasons at the University of Wisconsin and made an immediate impact, winning the Calder Trophy as Rookie of the Year. Dany joined the NHL elite during his sophomore season as he rung up 41 goals and 89 points. Prior to the 2003-04 season, Heatley was involved in a devastating car accident which claimed the life of his teammate Dan Snyder. Dany suffered a serious knee injury in the crash and after months of rehabilitation returned to the ice to partake in 31 games.

Heatley was then dealt to the Ottawa Senators where he posted back-to-back 50-goal seasons in his first 2 years with the club. After 4 seasons in Ottawa, Dany joined the San Jose Sharks where he put up 39 goals and 82 points in his first season with the club, playing in all 82 games. After another season with the Sharks, Dany joined the Minnesota Wild prior to the 2011-12 season and has spent the past 3 years with the club. Heatley is approaching 400-career goal and 800 career point marks. Dany has twice been a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star and has played in 3 NHL All Star games, numerous World Championships, the World Cup of Hockey and in the Olympics twice.

The game wear on this 3rd set size 56 sweater is rather tough to discern thanks to the dark coloration. There are some noticeable stick and slash marks, board burns and inner pilling worthy of mention on this sophomore sweater. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging.
