2019-20 Nikita Zadorov Stadium Series Period 1 (NHL/Fanatics)

This is Nikita Zadorov's 2020 NHL Stadium Series Period 1 game worn sweater.. This Big Z sweater displays very light use which is typical for these one period worn outdoor game sweaters.. However, there is one massive board burn/hole in right elbow which I was able to photomatch multiple times which is a rarity with these outdoor sweaters.. The Avalanche certainly did not play well in this game and wound up losing 3-1 to the LA Kings powered by Tyler Toffoli's hat trick.
Although I was one of the many fans that did not have a positive experience at this event, I am very excited to add this sweater to my collection.. This controversial sweater is much nicer in person than in photos in my opinion.. The burgundy and sky blue really pop on the sweater.. The sweater will certainly go down as an important piece of Colorado Avalanche history.

Here are two spot on photomatches of Big Z wearing the sweater in the first period of the game. The unprepared burn hole is clearly visible in the photos
