Jersey Description: New York Islanders prospect Vladimir Gorbunov wore this jersey while he played for CSKA Moscow and CSKA 2, CSKA Moscow's farm team in the 2001-02 season. Vladimir was one of the team's top forwards and played consistently on the second or third line. He is known for his aggressive style of play. Vladimir plays with heart and has been getting bigger to back it up. At the end of last year he suffered a shoulder injury, and has since then returned and established himself as one of the better centermen in CSKA Moscow. The jersey shows medium- heavy wear, with marks on the body and on the sleeves and several small rips on the elbows. There is also a rip on the right shoulder - someone seriously took a stick to his shoulder. The name plate is sewed on. As you can see on the photo of the back of the jersey, there is a Lutch and Russian Hockey Federation logos sublimated on the bottom of the jersey, which signifies it is not an authentic, but a team issued jersey.
This jersey will be accompanied by a
RussianProspects.com Certificate of Authenticity (COA).
