2004-05 Alexei Kovalev Ak Bars Kazan Game Worn Jersey
Lot #722

This white air-knit gamer by Lutch was worn by Alexei Kovalev during the 2004-05 season. The New York Rangers selected Kovalev in the 1st round of the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. Kovalev began his career in New York with the Rangers in 1992-93 and was a member of the Stanley Cup winning team the following season. All told Alexei would spend his first 7 seasons with the Rangers before a trade sent him to Pittsburgh during the 1998-99 campaign. Kovalev’s career really took off after his arrival in Pittsburgh. In 2000-01 he set career highs with 44 goals and 95 points. He followed that up with a strong 32 goals in 67 games during the 2001-02 season. With 18 NHL seasons in the books, Kovalev amassed 428 goals and 1024 career points.

The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. A fantastic example that was worn by Kovalev during the NHL’s lockout shortened season.
