2008-09 Nikolai Khabibulin Chicago Blackhawks Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match Team Letter
Lot #84

This road white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Nikolai Khabibulin during the 2008-09 NHL season. The Winnipeg Jets selected Khabibulin in the 9th round of the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. After coming over from his native Russia in 1994, Khabibulin began his NHL career with the Jets. He spent his first 5 seasons with the Jets franchise, three of those years in Phoenix following the move from Winnipeg. In 3 seasons with the Coyotes, Nikolai appeared in 72, 70 and 63 games respectively. Khabibulin next joined the Tampa Bay Lightning where he tended goal for parts of 4 seasons prior to guarding the pipes in Chicago for 4 seasons. A 4-year stint in Edmonton preceded his final stop, the Chicago Blackhawks. Nikolai has represented his native Russia in the World Cup of Hockey and the Olympics and he is also a 4-time NHL All Star participant. During the 2009-10 season, Khabibulin notched his 300th career win which placed him in rare company, the top 20 all-time. His crowning achievement came in 2003-04 when he backstopped the Lightning to the first Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history, posting all 16 Wins and a remarkable 1.71 GAA in those playoffs!

The game wear on this 3rd set size 58 Goalie cut sweater is solid and consists of stick and puck marks, goal post paint transfer, heavy cuff pilling, inner pilling and a gaudy sized team-sewn repair extending away from the crest. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Khabibulin wearing this exact jersey during the 2008-09 season. A black sharpie “3” can be found penned in the collar while the official Chicago Blackhawks game worn jersey tagging is sewn to the inside hem. This jersey will be accompanied by a Blackhawks team letter.
