2006-07 Phil Kessel Providence Bruins Warm-Up Jersey Rookie
Lot #257
This black air-knit warm-up jersey by Reebok was worn by Phil Kesssel during the 2006-07 AHL season, his rookie year. The Boston Bruins selected Kessel with the 5th overall pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at the University of Minnesota, this Madison, WI native began his NHL career in 2006-07 with the Bruins. It was a tumultuous rookie season as Kessel was diagnosed with and overcame Cancer while missing only a dozen games! In recognition of his efforts, Phil was awarded the Bill Masterton Trophy. After just three years in Boston, the Maple Leafs acquired Kessel and he paid immediate dividends for the club. Kessel notched four consecutive 30+ goal seasons prior to the 2012-13 shortened schedule and then scored an impressive 37 goals in 2013-14. After 6 seasons with the Maple Leafs, Kessel joined the Pittsburgh Penguins and in his first year with his new club helped lead them to the 2016 Stanley Cup on the strength of 10 goals and 22 playoff points. Kessel and the Penguins completed the rare feat of back-to-back Stanley Cup titles in 2017 as he again lit up the playoff score sheets with 23 more points. Kessel, now with the Coyotes, has his sights set on the 400-goal plateau. Phil is a three-time NHL All Star who was a staple on Team USA’s roster, having competed in numerous World Championships and two Olympics, capturing Silver in 2010. In fact, after scoring 5 goals and 8 points in 6 games, Kessel was named the top forward for the entire 2014 Olympics in Sochi!

Kessel played in just two minor league games during his career. Those games were with the Providence Bruins during his Bill Masterton Trophy winning rookie season. The team auctioned these jerseys at the end of the season. This rookie warm up jersey is a size 58.
