Inside The Mind of a Lunatic: My Hockey Jersey Collection

Believe it or not, a lot of you out there have been asking for this one for a while. I've been asked countless times how many jerseys I have in my possession, and to be honest I don't know the answer to that question. I started this collection when I was in the 8th or 9th grade and it has steadily grown since then. To make things easier, I sorted them into categories before writing this. Deep breath now, here we go!

Part 1: NHL (non-Washington Capitals)

Anaheim Ducks - Troy Terry #61

Calgary Flames - Trevor Kidd #37

Colorado Avalanche - Nathan MacKinnon #29

Dallas Stars - Pierre Turgeon #77

Detroit Red Wings - Sergei Fedorov #91

Los Angeles Kings - Wayne Gretzky #99

Ottawa Senators - Alternate (2000-2007)

Toronto Maple Leafs - Auston Matthews #34

Part 2: NCAA

Michigan State Spartans - #2 (Game Worn)

North Dakota Fighting Sioux - T.J. Oshie #7

Part 3: International

Team USA - Brian Rafalski #28

Dynamo Moscow - Alex Ovechkin #32

Part 4: Minor League

Red Deer Rebels - Doug Lynch #24

Prince Albert Raiders - Alternate (2006-present)

Humboldt Broncos - Brayden Camrud #26

Erie Otters - Connor McDavid #97

Windsor Spitfires - Away (2009-2013)

London Knights - Mitch Marner #93

Ottawa 67s - Away (2001-present)

Halifax Mooseheads - Nathan MacKinnon #22

Part 5: Washington Capitals

Richard Zednik #44 - Black (1997-2000)

Sergei Gonchar #55 - Blue (1995-2000)

Alex Ovechkin #8 - Black (2006-2007)

Alex Ovechkin #8 - Home

Nicklas Backstrom #19 - Away

Marcus Johansson #90 - Home

John Carlson #74 - Home

Alex Ovechkin #8 - 2011 Winter Classic

Evgeny Kuznetsov #92 - 2018 Stadium Series

T.J. Oshie #77 - Home

Braden Holtby #70 - Home

And that wraps up all of the jerseys I currently have in my collection, well the hockey ones at least. It is impossible for me to pick one that I would call my favorite, but I definitely do have favorites out of the bunch. Most of the Caps sweaters fall into that category due to good old-fashioned home team bias, especially the black and blue ones from the late 90s. Some of the minor league ones like the Ottawa 67s "barber pole" sweater and Nathan MacKinnon's Halifax Mooseheads jersey are favorites of mine and really unique. And, that Auston Matthews home sweater is just about the best looking one of the bunch.

Which one stands out to you? What jerseys are a part of your collection? Let me know in the comments!
