24 Chris McAllister
2002-2003 Eighth Season
CCM/Koho Airknit. Set 3. Neck tagging 58.
NHL-MGG No. A06971
This jersey shows light overall wear, as McAllister came to the team late in the season, playing 15 games total. The jersey does, however, show a few good wear points. The "v" of the neck yoke has been repaired using multi-colored thread to match the different colors of the fabric. Evidence fo the tear extends slightly down into the body, indicating damage from probably a fight. The body is clean for the most part, with the exception of a long light stick mark near the rear hem. Both sleeves show a few light marks and some very slight burns on the seams, with the right sleeve showing several light board burns. The jersey is accompanied by the MGG-NHL documents.

Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Chris McAllister played Tier II junior with the home town Royals before moving up to the local Blades of the WHL in 1992-93. He was chosen 40th overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, then spent his first two pro seasons with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch. The towering defenceman split the next two seasons between the NHL and the minors but was unable to land a permanent spot on the Canucks' blueline.
In February 1999, the Toronto Maple Leafs sought the hulking rearguard as they prepared for the playoffs. He was traded east in exchange for Darby Hendrickson and was a steady addition to the defense corps. McAllister spent only parts of two seasons in Toronto and was traded to the Flyers during training camp in 2000.
McAllister played parts of three seasons in Philly before he joined the Colorado Avalanche during the 2002-03 season. McAllister stay in Colorado would be short lived. In the latter stages of the 2003-04 season, the Avs dealt McAllister in a package deal to the New York Rangers.
