2008-09 Alexei Zhitnik Moscow Dynamo Pre-Season Game Worn Jersey
Lot #392
This white air-knit jersey by Lutch was worn by Alexei Zhitnik during the 2008-09 pre-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 was spent with the Sabres, a decade all told. Alexei also represented 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!

This was Zhitnik’s first white Dynamo jersey upon returning to Russia after his retirement from the NHL. Alexei wore #30 during the 2008-09 pre-season and is shown above wearing #30 with a gold medal around his neck following Dynamo’s victory in the Mayor of Moscow Cup from the summer of 2008. The game wear on this size 54 jersey is light, as would be expected, with some stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling.
