2006 Wade Redden Team Canada Turin Olympics Game Worn Jersey
Lot #183
This white air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Wade Redden during the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin Italy. The New York Islanders made Redden the 2nd overall selection in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He began his career in 1996-97 in Ottawa after being dealt there in exchange for Bryan Berard. Wade would become the franchise’s cornerstone on defense, playing in Ottawa for 11 seasons before signing with the New York Rangers where he played for a couple of years prior to retiring. Wade holds virtually every Senators franchise record for defenseman and played in the 2002 NHL Star Game. On the international scene, this Canadian native represented Team Canada in the World Championships, the World Cup and the 2006 Olympics.

Team Canada wore their white jerseys 3 times over the course of their 6 games played in Turin, including their elimination game against the Russians. The game wear on this size 60 sweater consists of stick marks that can be found on the sleeves and body, a couple of handfuls all told, along with a board burn and some paint transfer. On the inside is a traditional fight strap along with the Nike barcode. These Nike made sweaters were a departure from tradition as they used new technology and handfuls of different panels to piece these futuristic sweaters together making for some collectible and intriguing Olympic history.
