2015-16 Cody McLeod Stadium Series (MeiGray/NHL)

This is Cody McLeod's Stadium Series game worn jersey from the 2016 Coors Light Stadium Series game vs Detroit Red Wings.  The game was played on February 27th, 2016 at Coors Field in Denver, CO.  The Red Wings defeated the Avalanche 5-3.  McLeod wore this jersey during the 1st period of the game.  He registered a 4 minute double minor penalty during the first period.  The jersey is in pristine condition.  This is to be expected from a jersey worn for only 1 period.  It was a such a memorable experience and I am thrilled to own a game worn jersey from this outdoor game from one of my favorite Avalanche players
 The Alternate Captain's A is affixed to the left chest of the sweater

2013-14 Cody McLeod Set 1 Home (MeiGray)

This is Cody McLeod's set 1 Home jersey from the 2013-14 season.. McLeod is a hard working, grinding forward and is a fan favorite in Colorado. The sweater shows minimal wear, but does have a reinforced custom collar, some minor pilling and has been photo matched to some loose threads on the 5 on the right shoulder.  McLeod scored wearing this jersey vs. Chicago Blackhawks on 11/19/13.  I was at the game and saw the goal scored right in front of me which makes this sweater quite special.. McLeod also added 4 assists while wearing the sweater.  He also was wearing the sweater on 10/23/13 where he drove Niklas Kronwall into the boards at the Pepsi Center resulting in Kronwall being knocked out cold.  A fight ensued and McLeod was given a game misconduct and then suspended for 5 games after the league reviewed the hit on Kronwall.

 Here's a photo McLeod celebrating scoring the goal against the Blackhawks in the sweater

2012-13 Milan Hejduk Set 2 Road (MeiGray)

This is Milan Hejduk's Set 2 road sweater from the 2012-13 season.  The sweater is mostly pristine with a stick mark on the right sleeve and some minor pilling.  This strike shortened season would prove to be Hejduk's last in his great career.  Hejduk was one of the greatest players ever to play for Avalanche organization.. Hejduk played 1020 games in an Avalanche sweater scoring 375 goals, 430 assists for 805 points. Hejduk is the 2nd leading scorer in Avalanche history, only behind Joe Sakic.  He won the Stanley Cup with the Avs in 2001.  This sweater has some nice history behind it.  Hejduk was wearing this jersey in Calgary on March 27, 2013 when he registered his last point of his career assisting on a Ryan O'Reilly goal. 

 The alternate captain's A adorns the left chest of the sweater.
