This blue air-knit gamer by CCM and Elite Sportswear was worn by Mark Messier during the 2016-17 Heritage Classic Alumni Game in Winnipeg. Messier made his debut in 1978-79 in the WHA where he played for the Indianapolis Racers and Cincinnati Stingers. Following the merger with the NHL, Messier made his NHL debut in 1979-80 with the Oilers where he would star for 12 seasons. During his time with the Oilers, Mark won five Stanley Cups and became recognized as one of the sports greats. In 1991-92, Messier made his New York Rangers debut and helped lead the team to the President’s Trophy in his first season. Merely three years into his tenure, Messier helped the 1994 Rangers to their first and only Stanley Cup since 1940. Following 6 seasons on Broadway, Messier joined the Vancouver Canucks for three seasons before returning to the Rangers for the final four years of his career. All told, Messier played in 25 NHL seasons.

Messier’s legendary accomplishments include 694 goals - 9th best of all-time, 1193 assists - third best of all time and 1887 points - third best of all-time. Messier’s playoff totals rank him second best of all-time behind only Wayne Gretzky with 109 goals, 186 assists and 295 points. Messier is a 6-time Stanley Cup Champion, was the winner of two Hart Memorial Trophies, two Ted Lindsay Awards, and a Conn Smythe Trophy. Messier played in 15 NHL All Star Games and was five-times named 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star. Messier was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame with the class of 2007.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. Sewn to the right shoulder is the 2016 Heritage Classic Alumni Game patch. The game wear on this 1st set size XXL sweater is on the lighter side as would be expected. Messier wore this jersey during the 1st period as well as throughout pre-game warmups. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Messier wearing this exact jersey during the 2016 Heritage Classic. On the back player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Messier’s own hand. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. Sewn alongside is the official Edmonton Oilers game worn jersey and set tagging. A beautiful patched example complete with the coveted letter of honor and worn by this legendary Hall of Famer during the 2016 Heritage Classic, choice! This jersey will be accompanied by an Oilers team letter.
