Jersey Description: Columbus Blue Jackets forward Alexander Sivitov wore this #15 Avangard Omsk home jersey during the 2005-06 season that he spent in the Russian Super League. The young forward was raised in the Avangard hockey system. He performed very well during that season and was one of the club’s offensive leaders. The jersey features ads of SibirNeft, an oil company that is the sole sponsor of the Super League club and is owned by Mr. Abramovich, who also owns British soccer/football club Chelsea which one the European Championship a few years back. The jersey also features Soyuz Vikant ads on the shoulders. This is the same company that has recently sponsored Russia’s national team. The jersey is manufactured by Kait and is made of a high quality, durable mesh, and includes Nike type innovations, such meshed armpits for circulation. It shows heavy wear with a number of marks on the body and the sleeves, as can be seen in the photos.
This jersey will be accompanied by a
