Reader Submission - 2006-07 Ottawa Senators Daniel Alfredsson Jersey

Our latest reader submission comes from Jani Maarala, and it's perfect timing with the NHL playoffs now underway.

Here is Jani's writeup about his favorite jersey and what makes it historic in term of the Stanley Cup Finals.

One of the definite favorites in my collection is 2006-2007 Ottawa Senators Daniel Alfredsson SCF White. 
This jersey was worn in the first Stanley Cup Final in Ottawa for 80 years. Also it was the first in Ontario province in 40 years. 
Ottawa was down 2-0 in the series but won the third game by the score of 5-3. There was an incident following Daniel Alfredsson's tying goal which made it 3-3. The referees waved the goal off at first, because they thought it was a kick. After video review the goal was approved because there was no kicking motion. 
This jersey is historic also because of a fact that no other European had captained a team to the Stanley Cup finals before Alfredsson.

Thanks to Jani for taking the time to photograph his jersey and share the story of Alfresson and his historic participation in the Stanley Cup Finals in this style jersey. We really appreciate the efforts involved when our readers take the time and effort to share their jerseys.


If you have a jersey in your collection that you'd like to share with us and your fellow readers, please submit your pictures and a story to go with it, no matter how brief or detailed, to spyboy1@gmail.com and we look forward to seeing your favorites!

  1. Nice jersey Jani. However, the Sens wore their home red jersey in Game 3 when they won their only game of the 2007 SCF.I remember it well because I was at the game.
