Ville Leino Philadelphia Flyers Black Easton Game Used Helmet Oakley Visor
Lot #594

This black hockey helmet by Easton was game worn by Ville Leino while playing for the Philadelphia Flyers. Born in Finland, Leino spent more than a handful of seasons playing in SM-liiga before coming to North America to further pursue his career. In 2008-09, he latched onto the Detroit Red Wings and appeared in 13 games for the team made its way to the Cup Finals only to fall at the hands of Sidney Crosby and his Penguins. On February 6th 2010, the Red Wings traded Leino to the Philadelphia Flyers. Ville suited up in 13 regular season games for Philly and then made the league take notice as he turned it up a notch come playoff time. Despite starting the playoffs on the bench, Leino played in 19 postseason games for the Flyers, scoring 7 goals and adding 14 assists for 21 points, which tied Dino Ciccarelli’s long-standing rookie playoff scoring record. Ville’s 14 assists are a rookie playoff scoring record as are his 6 assists in the Stanley Cup Finals. Ville especially shined during those Cup Finals against the Blackhawks, scoring 3 goals and 9 points and going +6 during the 6-game series. After another full season with the Flyers, Leino signed a 6-year $27 million free agent contract with the Sabres. After 3 seasons in Buffalo, Leino returned to Europe to continue his career until he retired after the 2015-16 season.

This black Easton helmet has the player number “22” on back. The Flyers logo is on both sides. The Oakley visor remains on the front.
