2008-09 Alexei Zhitnik Moscow Dynamo Game Jersey
Lot #359
This blue air-knit jersey by Lutch looks to have been prepared for use by Alexei Zhitnik during the 2008-09 season. The Los Angeles Kings selected Zhitnik in the 4th round of the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. This 15-year NHL veteran began his career with the LA Kings and made a run to the Cup Finals as a rookie. The bulk of Zhitnik’s playing days were spent with the Sabres, a decade all told. Alexei also represnted the New York Islanders, the Philadelphia Flyers and the Atlanta Thrashers ,where, after the 2007-08, season he left the NHL to return to Russia and play for Moscow Dynamo. In a career that spanned 1085 games, Alexei tallied an impressive 471 points and 1268 PIMS. He was twice an NHL All Star and also represented his native Russia in the 1992 Canada Cup, the 1996 World Cup, numerous World Championships and a couple of Olympics!

We surmise this sweater to be either a training camp jersey or a team issued jersey that coincided with Zhitnik’s arrival back in Russia following his NHL career. This size 54 jersey shows light use.
