2006-2007 Michael Nylander Set 1 Road (Meigray)

This is Michael Nylander's game worn road sweater set 1 for the 2006-07 season.  Nylander came to the Rangers the year before and immediately made his presence felt.  He was masterful centering the Rangers first power play unit with Jaromir Jagr.  Nylander wore this sweater in 14 road games, scoring 6 goals and adding 14 assists for 20 points.  Nylander only skated for the Rangers for two seasons but undoubtedly had his best two years with NY. He was key in ending the Rangers long 7 year playoff drought.  This sweater has been photo matched in several road games in the first half of 2006-07 season. It has several stick marks, board burns and team repairs. 

Here are two photos of Nylander wearing this sweater in a game vs the Los Angeles Kings on 10/30/2006.
