Marian Hossa Atlanta Thrashers Black Mission Game Used Stick
Lot #371
This black Mission Fuel Grip hockey stick was game used by Marian Hossa while playing for the Atlanta Thrashers. Marian was the Ottawa Senators 1st round selection in the 1997 NHL entry draft, going 12th overall. Hossa began his career in Ottawa where he played for 7 years. Three seasons followed in Atlanta and then a deadline deal sent him to Pittsburgh where he played at the end of 2007-08 making a run to the Stanley Cup Finals.

After the 2007-08 season, Hossa signed a one year free agent contract with the Detroit Red Wings.  Marian had a good season with the Wings, leading the team in goals with 40 and averaging almost a point per game. Interestingly, Marian wound up in the finals again, facing off against his former team from the year before, the Penguins. After a hard fought 7-game series, Marian again came out on the losing side as the Red Wings were defeated 2-1 in the seventh game.

The 2008-09 off-season saw Marian sign a long-term contract with the Chicago Blackhawks. On May 23, 2010, the Blackhawks beat the San Jose Sharks to earn a trip to the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals. Marian became the first player in NHL history to play in three consecutive finals with 3 different teams. On June 9, 2010, Marian celebrated with his teammates as he finally won his first Stanley Cup, as the Blackhawks defeated the Flyers to win their first championship in 49 years. Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews handed the Cup to Hossa first during the team pass-around. The 2012-13 season saw Marian win his 2nd Stanley Cup as the Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins 4-2 in the Stanley Cup Finals. 
Hossa is averaging nearly a point per game thus far in a career that has spanned almost 1100 NHL games in 15 seasons. He has already played in 5 NHL All Star games.  Marian reached the 400-goal plateau in 2011-12 and has a chance to reach the magical 500 next season.

This black Mission hockey stick has the player name “Hossa” on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt, shaft and blade. It is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
