This yellow air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by P.J. Axelsson during the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. The Boston Bruins selected Axelsson in the 7th round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. This native of Kungalv, Sweden spent a handful of years playing in his country before making his NHL debut in 1997-98 with the Boston Bruins. Axelsson spent his entire 11-year NHL career with Boston before returning to Sweden to play for another four years in the Swedish Elite League before announcing his retirement in 2013.

Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the 2004 World Cup of Hockey patch. The game wear on this size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and trauma along with inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Axelsson wearing this exact jersey during the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. Affixed to the inside hem is the official Nike barcode. A well-worn photo matched example from the World Cup of Hockey.
