2008-09 Janne Pesonen Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey - Rookie - Team Letter
Lot #186
This home black air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Janne Pesonen during the 2008-09 NHL season, his rookie year. The Anaheim Mighty Ducks selected Pesonen in the 9th round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. After spending most of the decade with Karpat in the Finnish Elite League, Pesonen spent a year with the Penguins organization in 2008-09. Janne played in 70 games with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and was called up by the Pens and appeared in 7 games in the NHL, thus encompassing his NHL career. Since returning to Europe, Pesonen has played in the KHL and most recently back in his native Finland.

The game wear on this 1st set size 56 rookie sweater is on the light side as would be expected. Worthy of mention are some stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. The fight strap bears a black sharpie signature by the team’s equipment man, while the official Pittsburgh Penguins game worn jersey and set tagging is sewn to the inside hem. To the best of our knowledge this was the only black Penguins jersey worn by Pesonen during his brief NHL career. This jersey will be accompanied by a Penguins team letter.
