Ilya Kovalchuk Autographed Russian National Team Replica Jersey

This white hockey jersey was manufactured by Lutch. 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 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, he 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 2018-19. Kovalchuk just started his second season in LA.

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. At just 35-years of age, this winger, despite missing 6 seasons, has already eclipsed 430 career goals, with his sights set on the prestigious 500 Goal club. 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 and the 2002, 2006, 2010 and the 2018 Olympics where he captured his first Olympic Gold Medal.

This Russian National team, size 56, jersey has the player name “Kovalchuk” on the back in Russian. The player number “71” is on both sleeves and the back. Ilya has autographed the front.
