Ilya Kovalchuk Atlanta Thrashers Black Warrior Game Used Stick Autographed
Lot #655
This black Warrior Dolomite hockey stick was game used by 50-goal scorer Ilya Kovalchuk while playing for the Atlanta Thrashers. The Atlanta Thrashers selected Kovalchuk with the 1st overall pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. This Russian native made his NHL debut in 2001-02 with Atlanta where he spent the first 8 years of his NHL career. The Thrashers dealt Kovalchuk to the New Jersey Devils in 2009-10 and Ilya played for parts of four seasons with the Devils that included a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2012. Half a season later, with 11 years of NHL service in tow, Kovalchuk abruptly left the NHL to play for St. Petersburg in the KHL. Kovalchuk dominated the Russian League for 6 seasons before agreeing to a deal with the Los Angeles Kings and returning to the NHL in 2018. Since returning, Kovalchuk played for the Kings, Canadiens and Capitals before heading back to the KHL for the 2020-21 season.

Already to his credit is a pair of 50-goal seasons and an additional three 40-goal seasons. Kovalchuk has played in three NHL All Star Games, has 1st and a 2nd Team NHL All Star selections to his credit and was the winner of the 2003-04 Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy as the NHL’s leading goal scorer. Ilya’s international resume is lengthy and impressive with appearances in the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, a dozen World Championships that includes three Gold Medals as well as four Olympics spanning 2002-2018 where in his most recent appearance, he captured his first Olympic Gold Medal.

This black Warrior stick has the player name “I. Kovalchuk” on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt. The blade tape has been removed so Ilya could autograph it. The stick is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
