Jersey Description: Tampa Bay Lightning 2001 2nd round selection Alexander Polushin wore this CSKA Moscow jersey during the 2003-04 season. The young prospect was projected to be selected late in the first round and Tampa Bay was fortunate to pick him up early in the second round.
The jersey is manufactured by Lutch, the premier jersey manufacturer in Russia. It features a new material that the company introduced for the 2003-04 season that is smoother and apparently more durable. The jersey features large webbing under the arms. The Wurth and Mariher ads on the front and back bottom of the jersey are sewed on, as is the name plate on the back of the jersey. The Russian Hockey Federation patch on the bottom hem of the jersey is also sewed on to differentiate the jersey from the authentic replicas that the company also manufactures. Another feature of this jersey is the fight strap. It is something new in Russia, since fighting is looked down upon and doesn’t occur all that often. The wear on the jersey is significant on the sleeves, including scoff marks. There is also wear on the right sleeve near the #18 that has been photo matched below. There is also a good amount of marks on the body of the jersey. Please feel free to email us if you would like more detailed photos of the jersey!This jersey will be accompanied by a
RussianProspects.com Certificate of Authenticity (COA).
