2016-17 JT Compher Set 2 Home (KSE/Avalanche)

This is JT Compher's set 2 home sweater from his rookie season with the Avalanche.  This sweater has a great story behind it and is quite special.. I would imagine that he would perhaps want this jersey down the road so we will see.. Compher scored his 1st NHL goal against the Detroit Redwings in this sweater on March 15th, 2017 at the Pepsi Center.  It also happened to be the game winning goal as the Avs went on to defeat the Wings 3-1. The rookie sweater consists of very good game use consisting of board burns and several team repairs.  This is the last set of Reebok Edge 2.0 Avs' sweaters as the league is switching to Adidas next season.  We may see a style change with regards to the Avalanche sweaters. 

JT Compher is one of the top Avs young players to emerge in 2016-17 season.  He projects to be a solid third line center for the Avs for years to come.
