34 Mikael Andersson
 
About the Jersey
1992-93 Tampa Bay Lightning
Road CCM Air-Knit, Size 50, 100 year Stanley Cup Patch, Inaugural Season
MGS No. 111860

This jersey is absolutely destroyed! The entire jersey is covered in more than 14 great repairs, board burns, puck/stick marks, paint transfers, fraying on the numbers, evidence of washings, etc. Worn in Tampa Bay's first year of existence, this is one of the most pounded pieces in the collection.

In an NHL career that has spanned some 16 seasons and almost 800 games with five teams, Andersson has also accomplished an enormous amount in minor and international hockey. While he was a part-time member of the Buffalo Sabres from 1985 to 1989, he also won two Calder Cups, one with the Rochester Americans and the other with Springfield in the AHL. He has also worn the yellow and blue Tre Kronor sweater on numerous occasions, notably three times at the World Juniors, a rare feat.

Andersson has also played in three World Championships, including the 1992 competition when Sweden won gold, the 1991 Canada Cup, 1996 World Cup, and 1998 Olympics. During the lockout-shortened 1994-95 season he returned home to play a few games with Vastra Frolunda in the Swedish League.

The number-one ranked European player in 1985, he entered the NHL belatedly with the Sabres when he damaged some tendons in his heal while playing a touch football game with his Sabres teammates at training camp that fall, forcing him to the minors to work his way back into shape. His best season was 1991-92 with Hartford when he scored 18 goals, but after almost seven seasons with Tampa Bay he was traded first to Philadelphia and then the Islanders.

Following the 1999-00 NHL season, Andersson returned to Sweden continuing his career in the SEL.
