2002 Scott Stevens Team Canada Olympics Training Camp Worn Jersey – “Respect”
Lot #224
This black air-knit and mesh combo by Nike was worn by Scott Stevens during the 2002 Winter Olympics Training Camp. The Washington Capitals made Stevens the 5th overall selection in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. He would go on to a much-celebrated 23-year Hall of Fame career. He played for the Capitals for his first 8 seasons before signing as a free agent in July of 1990 with the St. Louis Blues.

Merely a year later, in a landmark decision, Stevens was transferred to the New Jersey Devils as compensation for the signing of Brendan Shanahan. He would remain with the Devils until the end of his career some 13 years later. In 1635 games played, Stevens scored 908 points and racked up 2785 PIMS. He partook in 233 playoff contests, scoring 118 points and amassing 402 PIMS. After only 1 season in New Jersey, Stevens assumed the title of Team Captain, a role he held for the next 12 seasons. During this time he hoisted 3 Stanley Cups and was awarded the 2000 Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player of the playoffs. Scott represented Team Canada in the Canada Cup, the World Cup of Hockey and the Olympics. He was 5-times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and appeared in 13 NHL All Star games. This warrior is a most deserving member of the NHL Hall of Fame and will be remembered as one of the great leaders and competitors of our generation.

Sewn to the back of this sweater is the “Respect” patch. This Nike jersey is a size 58, shows light use and has Scott’s name and number sewn to the verso while the red, black and green Team Canada crest is sewn proudly to the chest.
