Mattias Norstrom Los Angeles Kings 2002 playoffs photo matched game used jersey. This jersey has the AM patch to remember the two men who passed during the tragedy on 911, Ace Bailey and Mark Bavis. On the left chest is the Los Angeles All Star game patch as the Kings hosted the best players in the world that season. The Captains C is a nice treat to go along with this being used in the 2002 playoffs as denoted by kings long time equipment man, Peter Millar. The patch has the playoff information on it along with his initials PM circled. Some small board burns and stick marks on the sleeves and nice fraying of the numbers on the back and arms. The letter from Kings Vice President Dave Taylor, has just been added to this posting.
This jersey was worn for three playoff games in Los Angeles on April 22nd, 23rd and in game six on April 27th. The Colorado Avalanche backed by Patrick Roy, took the Kings in seven games to end their season. This was the only home jersey issued for the playoffs. Peter Millar told me that they would get a new set for each series but they never made it past the quarter finals in 2002. Nice photo matches taken during the series, adds to this eye catching Captain’s jersey.
Norstrom played for the Kings, New York Rangers and the Dallas Stars. A letter from the Los Angeles Kings Dave Taylor has been added.
