This purple and black air-knit jersey by Reebok was worn by Rob Blake during Warm Ups on Luc Robitaille’s Jersey Retirement Night, January 20, 2007. The Los Angeles Kings selected Blake in the 4th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. In an NHL career that spanned 20 seasons, Blake spent 14 of those as a member of the Kings. After playing his award laden college hockey at Bowling Green State University, Blake began his initial 12-year run in LA in 1989-90, playing in 4 games. He soon after became one of the league’s best defenseman and was awarded the Norris Trophy in honor of such for his play in 1997-98. During Rob’s time with the Colorado Avalanche, he won his 1st and only Stanley Cup championship in 2001. His 240 career goals and 777 points are impressive as are his 1679 PIMS. Blake partook in 7 NHL All Star Games and was 4 times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star. On the international stage, Blake represented Team Canada in the World Championships, the inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey and in 3 different Olympics! In fact, Blake earned the honor of best defenseman at the 1998 Olympics as well as the 1997 World Championships. Blake was deservingly inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in the class of 2014.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Robitaille Retirement Night patch. Robitaille’s name and number adorn this sweater, as all of the Kings wore it in tribute to their Hall of Fame teammate during pre-game warm ups. On the back player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Blake’s own hand. Sewn to the inside hem of this size 58 sweater is “4 Blake”. This jersey will be accompanied by a Kings team letter.
