Heavy overall use with plenty of board burns, puck/stick marks, unrepaired holes and slashes, and major fight abuse around neck. Team LOA signed by Executive Vice President, Peter Ricciardi, and Equipment Manager, Mark Puleo. Mayers has developed into an excellent penalty killer for the St. Louis Blues.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, Jamal Mayers played Junior B hockey with the Thornhill Rattlers then was chosen 89th overall by the Blues in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft after his freshman year at Western Michigan University. He returned for three more years of college and reached double figures in goals each time. In 1996-97 he played six games for St. Louis but spent the bulk of his time developing with the AHL's Worcester Ice Cats.

Mayers began the 1998-99 in the minors but was recalled at mid-season and never looked back. A solid defensive player in the last 34 games of the season, he then looked confident in 11 post-season matches. In 1999-00 Mayers scored seven goals and played on the fourth line while helping the Blues finish at the top of the NHL's regular season standings. The next year he registered 21 points and was used in a variety of situations. Mayers was particularly solid in the playoffs when St. Louis advanced to the Western Conference final. He began the 2001-02 season as a valuable foot soldier on one of the league's elite franchises and was one of the team's more durable players, having only missed 13 games in his last three season. However, a serious knee injury would cut Mayers season short as the Blues had another strong season, the feisty forward was limited to only 15 regular season games.

On the international stage, Mayers represented Canada at the 2000 World Championships.
