|The 2011 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft was unique. And so is this jersey.
This is an All-Star Opposite, one of three jerseys made for each player IN CASE he was selected by the other captain prior to the 2011 NHL All-Star Game in Raleigh, NC, won by Team Lidstrom over Team Staal, 11-10.
Three game-issued jerseys were prepared for each player. One set of jerseys went to the respective NHL teams. One set of jerseys went to the NHL Foundation, for donations. One set was made available through the NHL-MGG Game-Worn Authentication Program.
The jerseys were produced and tagged before the Fantasy Draft, before the sides were chosen.
TEAM LIDSTROM wore BLUE IN THE ALL-STAR GAME, so the jerseys available are the WHITE jerseys that were Game-Issued before the Fantasy Draft.
TEAM STAAL wore WHITE IN THE ALL-STAR GAME, so these are the BLUE jerseys that were Game-Issued before the Fantasy Draft.
