2008-09 Ruslan Salei Colorado Avalanche Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match - Team Letter
Lot #305
This road white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Ruslan Salei during the 2008-09 NHL season. The Anaheim Mighty Ducks selected Salei with the 9th overall pick in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. Salei began his NHL career with the Mighty Ducks in 1996-97 after leaving Russia. He would spend 9 seasons with the club before moving to Florida. After parts of 2 years with the Panthers, Ruslan spent parts of 3 more with the Colorado Avalanche before joining the Detroit Red Wings for his final season in 2010-11. In his 14 NHL seasons, Salei has in excess of 900 career games and 1000 PIMS to his credit. On July 5, 2011, Salei signed a one year contract with Yaroslavl Lokomotiv of the KHL. Ruslan tragically lost his life on September 7th, 2011, in a plane crash that killed 43 people including all of Yaroslavl Lokomotiv’s players and coaching staff.

The game wear on this 3rd set size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, inner pilling and a couple of team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Salei wearing this exact jersey during the 2008-09 season. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by an Avalanche team letter.
