Goldin Auctions is proud to offer one of the best game used jerseys in the history of hockey! Here is the exclusive opportunity to own the prestigious jersey Alexander Ovechkin wore to score the famous sliding goal. The Washington Capitals’ left winger has been one of the NHL’s premier players for the last 15 years. As he continues to add goals to his already impressive resume´, Ovechkin, the three-time Hart Trophy winner as the NHL MVP, scored his most memorable goal during the January 16th, 2006 game against the Phoenix Coyotes in Arizona. A simply stunning goal, Ovechkin, with the Capitals already in front 5-1, found the loose puck at the red line at the boards between the two teams’ benches, raced down the right side and was met by Coyotes defender Paul Mara at the top of the left faceoff circle. At full speed, Ovechkin curled the puck around Mara, who nudged Ovechkin off his feet and while falling to this ice and sliding on his back, he reached with full extension and flung the puck past the diving Coyotes’ goalie Brian Boucher and into the net.

A simply remarkable goal that was witnessed by the greatest hockey player of all-time Wayne Gretzky, who was coaching Phoenix that season. All Gretzky could do was look up at the jumbotron in amazement at what was simply one of the greatest goals ever scored in NHL history. This offered Washington Capitals road white jersey was worn by Ovechkin while scoring this amazing and unforgettable goal. This Reebok size 58 white air-knit jersey has the Capitals’ mid 2000’s logo sewn on the front. A diagonal striping pattern of blue, gold and black adorns the bottom, with the same pattern on the sleeve ends. Ovechkin’s number “8” is sewn on the back and the sleeves in black, white and gold tackle twill. “OVECHKIN” is sewn on in black, white and gold tackle twill on a matching white air-knit nameplate that is sewn on above the number on the back. The shoulders have the Capitals’ secondary logo patch and the Reebok patch is sewn on above Ovechkin’s name. The NHL logo patch is sewn on the bottom back right tail and this jersey is equipped with a white nylon fight strap that is sewn on the inside back.

The inside of the jersey has the Capitals’ team patch sewn on from “Cutting Edge Sports” of Woburn, MA that has printed “Has created and manufactured the numbering and lettering for the Washington Capitals Set #2 2005-2006 Equipment Manager Doug Shearer”. The jersey displays moderate game use with some team repairs and stains. This jersey comes with a LOA from The MeiGray Group, who have photo matched this jersey to the March 4th, 2006 game against the Atlanta Thrashers at Phillips Arena and have also provided an additional LOA addendum that states this jersey was worn during the game in which he scored his famous goal against the Coyotes. MeiGray photo matched this jersey to the Associated Press (AP Images) number “328143790817”. Alexander Ovechkin has already scored 706 goals, which is only 96 shy of the second spot on the all-time NHL scoring list, with Gretzky the all-time leader at 894. Here is your final chance to add to your collection the game used jersey of one of the most impressive goals of all time from potentially the best goal scorer to ever play the game!
