2008-09 Kyle Okposo New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey – Rookie - Photo Match – Team Letter
Lot #198

This road white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Kyle Okposo during the 2008-09 NHL season, his rookie year. The New York Islanders selected Okposo with the 7th overall pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. This St. Paul, MN native attended the University of Minnesota prior to beginning his professional career with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2007-08. Okposo made his NHL debut later the same season with a 9-game stint for the New York Islanders where he played for the first 9 years of his career prior to joining the Buffalo Sabres in 2016-17. On the international stage, Okposo has represented Team USA in the World Junior Championships as well as in 3 World Championships.

The game wear on this 1st set size 56 sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, an un-repaired gash, trauma, washed out bloodstains, inner pilling and a bunch of team-sewn repair work to the front of the right shoulder. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Okposo wearing this exact jersey during the 2008-09 season. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. Okposo received support in the Calder Trophy balloting for his efforts while wearing this sweater during his official rookie season. This jersey will be accompanied by an Islanders team letter.
