Lot #318

This white knit gamer by Bauer was worn by Mike Connolly during the 2010-11 WCHA season, UMD’s first National Championship winning season. Connolly played three years of college hockey at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. He became the first player in school history to score 40-points in each of his first three seasons. Connolly was a star member of the celebrated team that won the first National Championship in Minnesota-Duluth history in Saint-Paul, MN in 2011. He was named the Mike Seiler MVP Award winner for his outstanding efforts during the 2010-11 Championship season. After winning the NCAA Championship, Connolly made his NHL debut in 2011-12 with the Colorado Avalanche. He would spend a couple of years in the AHL before embarking on a professional career in the DEL in Europe, which continues to this day.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the right breast is the NCAA 2011 Saint-Paul Frozen Four patch. The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, material pulls and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Connolly wearing this exact jersey during the 2010-11 Frozen Four. Connolly played on a near All-American level during the 2010-11 campaign, scoring 28 goals and 54 points in 42 games en route to the MVP and National Championship. A tremendous photo matched example, complete with the Frozen Four patch as well as the coveted letter of honor and hailing from the Bulldogs first-ever National Championship season.
