Mark Messier wore this white jersey in December of 1994 when he participated in a barnstorming tour of Europe and the United States with a team made of star players during the 1994 National Hockey League lockout.

The Ninety-Nine All Stars Tour was a series of exhibition games between National Hockey League players and professional clubs and national All-Star Teams organized by Wayne Gretzky and IMG. The tour was designed to help the players stay game-ready, to raise money for charity, and to promote the sport of ice hockey. Eleven of the players who skated with the Ninety-Nine team have been inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The first game of the tour was against the Detroit Vipers of the International Hockey League, and a red jersey was worn. The other six games took place in Europe, and the Ninety-Nine team wore white in those games. The exhibition opponents were Jokerit and Ilves Tampere in Finland, the Norwegian Spectrum All Stars in Norway, Djurgårdens IF, Västra Frölunda HC, and Malmö IF in Sweden, and German All Stars in Germany. The final game of the Tour took place on December 14, 1994, and the NHL lockout ended on January 11, 1995.

During an NHL career that spanned 25 seasons, Messier played in 1,756 games. He scored 694 goals, made 1,903 assists, and finished with 1,887 points, good for third all-time in assists and points. He won six Stanley Cups, two Hart Trophies, two Pearson Awards, one Conn Smythe Trophy, and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2007.
