2015-16 Tuukka Rask Boston Bruins Game Issued Jersey Team Letter
Lot #282

This road white air-knit jersey by Reebok was issued for use to Tuukka Rask for the 2015-16 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Rask in the 1st round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. This native of Finland spent several years playing for Ilves Tampere in Finland’s SM-liiga before coming over to North America. Before he ever stepped foot on the ice for the Leafs, they traded Tuukka to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Andrew Raycroft. Rask now has 11 seasons of service between the pipes for the Bruins and in the spring of 2011 he became only the 2nd Finnish born goalie in history to capture the Stanley Cup. In 2013, Rask led the Bruins to their 2nd Stanley Cup Finals in 3 seasons, only to fall to the Chicago Blackhawks in 6 games. Following the 2014 season, Tuukka was awarded the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender, as well as a 1st Team NHL All Star.

This 58+ Goalie Cut sweater has Rask’s “40” written in ballpoint on the size tag. Being that the Bruins didn’t make the playoffs in 2016, Rask never had the occasion to wear this sweater. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Bruins team letter.
