2010-11 Saku Koivu Anaheim Ducks Game Worn Jersey Alternate - Photo Match Team Letter
Lot #115

This black alternate air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Saku Koivu during the 2010-11 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Koivu in the 1st round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. After leaving Turku, Finland in 1995, Koivu embarked on an NHL career that began in 1995-96 with the Montreal Canadiens where he played for 13 seasons. Saku spent the final five years of his career with the Anaheim Ducks. Koivu is tied with Jean Beliveau as the longest serving Captain in the storied history of the Canadiens franchise, serving in that role for 10 years. Koivu was also the first European born player to wear the distinguished “C” with Les Habitants.

In September of 2001, Koivu learned that he was suffering from non-Hodgkins lymphoma, causing him to miss nearly the entire 2001-02 campaign. His remarkable comeback and the continuance of his NHL career proved quite inspirational to many and won him the 2001-02 Bill Masterton Trophy. Saku was also the recipient of the 2006-07 King Clancy Memorial Trophy. This NHL All Star also played in 2 World Cups of Hockey, numerous World Championships and 4 Olympics while representing his native Finland.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this 2nd set size 56 sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, an un-repaired hole and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Koivu wearing this exact jersey during the 2010-11 season. This striking alternate is warranted by the team as having been worn by Koivu between February 16, 2011 – March 20, 2011. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Anaheim Ducks game worn jersey and set tagging. A beautiful photo matched alternate complete with letter of honor and worn by one of Finland’s all-time greats. This jersey will be accompanied by a Ducks team letter.
