This is Doug Weight's 1991-1992 New York Rangers Turn Back The Clock game-worn alternate jersey. This rookie year shirt is part of the one and only set issued to Rangers players as part of the NHL's original six throwback sweater program. During the 91/92 season each of the original six teams wore a unique retro style for a number of games to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the league. The Rangers shirts were designed to resemble those worn by their 1940 Stanley Cup championship team. They were used in a total of 13 games, 8 of which Weight played in. This extremely rare style has the NHL 75 patch sewn on the left chest and Gerry Cosby tagging in the neck. The jersey shows nice use with puck/stick marks and board burns spread throughout both sleeves, the front and back of the shirt. It also has a total of four team repairs: one on the back to the left of the nameplate and three more on the right sleeve. The jersey originated with the Meigray Group and has a COA from them and the New York Rangers.
This jersey has been photo matched to the board burn/paint transfer on the left rear hem.
Weight played in one playoff game in 90/91 with the Rangers, however 91/92 was his first full season with the team. This jersey is from that rookie year. Some games of note that Weight wore this jersey in include:
- 10/3/91 New York Rangers @ Boston Bruins: Weight's first career NHL regular season game and first career NHL goal/point.
- 10/5/91 New York Rangers @ Montreal Canadiens: Weight's first career NHL assist which came on the overtime game-winning goal in this, Mark Messier's first game with the Rangers. Weight also recorded the first Rangers goal in the 2-1 victory.
