This road white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Phil Kessel during the 2008-09 NHL season. The Boston Bruins selected Kessel in the 1st round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at the University of Minnesota, this Madison, WI native made his NHL debut in 2006-07 with the Bruins. It was a tumultuous rookie season as Kessel was diagnosed with and overcame Cancer while missing only a dozen games! In recognition of his efforts, Phil was awarded the Bill Masterton Trophy. After just three years in Boston, the Maple Leafs acquired Kessel and he paid immediate dividends for the club. Kessel notched four consecutive 30 plus goal seasons prior to the 2012-13 shortened schedule and then scored an impressive 37 goals in 2013-14. After 6 seasons with the Maple Leafs, Kessel joined the Pittsburgh Penguins and in his first year with his new club helped lead them to the 2016 Stanley Cup on the strength of 10 goals and 22 playoff points. Kessel and the Penguins completed the rare feat of back-to-back Stanley Cup titles in 2017 as he again lit up the playoff score sheets with 23 more points. Kessel, moved onto the Coyotes and most recently the Vegas Golden Knights where he reached the 400-goal plateau earlier this season. Phil is a three-time NHL All Star who was a staple on Team USA’s roster, having competed in numerous World Championships and two Olympics, capturing Silver in 2010. In fact, after scoring 5 goals and 8 points in 6 games, Kessel was named the top forward for the entire 2014 Olympics in Sochi!

The game wear on this 2nd set size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, burns, material pulls and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Kessel wearing this exact jersey during the 2008-09 season. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging.

A beautiful photo matched offering from Kessel’s last of three seasons with the Boston Bruins. This jersey will be accompanied by a Bruins team letter.
