2005-06 Jonathan Toews University of North Dakota Game Worn Jersey Alternate - Rookie - Photo Match
Lot #211
This black alternate dazzle cloth gamer by Nike was worn by Jonathan Toews during the 2005-06 WCHA season, his rookie year. The Chicago Blackhawks selected Toews with the 3rd overall pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at the University of North Dakota, Toews began his NHL career with the Hawks in 2007-08. Now in his 8th season, the Captain of the Hawks has already hoisted Lord Stanley’s Cup on two occasions. Toews was the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP in Chicago’s first Cup run in 2010. In 2012-13, Toews won the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL’s best defensive forward and was named 2nd Team NHL All Star. He has played in a couple of NHL All Star games and was also named the Best Forward in the 2010 Olympics en route to Team Canada’s Gold Medal. Toews earned himself yet another Gold Medal at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi as he helped Team Canada retain their best in world status.



Toews spent 2 seasons at the University of North Dakota and powered his team to the Frozen Four both years. In 76 collegiate games, Toews lit the lamp 40 times and added 45 assists for a most impressive 85 points. As a freshman, the year that he wore this sweater, Toews was twice named WCHA Rookie of the week and also earned the 2006 NCAA West Regional MVP.



Offered here is the only black alternate sweater that Toews wore during his NCAA Rookie season! 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 fine inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Toews wearing this exact jersey during the 2005-06 season. This incredible offering marks the earliest known Toews gamer in the entire hobby. It was worn during Jonathan’s rookie season at the University of North Dakota and is the only black dazzle cloth Fighting Sioux gamer that Toews ever wore. After Toews’ rookie season, the style and material of the black alternates were changed, going from Nike dazzle cloth to Nike swift! This well-worn photo matched example would become the instant cornerstone in any Fighting Sioux collection of gamers. Simply one of the finest collegiate gamers known to exist in the entire hobby, choice!
