Erik Johnson #6

St. Louis Blues
2008-09 Reebok Edge 2.0 (Size 58+) – Game Issued
Same style worn as during his NHL Debut & First NHL Point (10/4/2007) & First NHL Goal (10/6/2007)

This jersey was purchased for me from a Discord user and St. Louis Blues fan “HarryJPotter” in March 2023 when the Blues listed some older jerseys for sale on their Rinkside Reserve website. Apparently, on Fridays, the Blues list items for sale right at 10 am Central. It’s not always jerseys, but worth checking for Blues fans! Harry immediately purchased it and then messaged me saying he had something for me :D. He said there likely wasn’t even enough time to message me about it, as they get snagged almost immediately so he just purchased it assuming I’d want it.

A couple of weeks earlier in Feb 2023, an EJ away game-worn away jersey from the 2009-10 season was listed that I missed out on, so I’m super stoked Harry snagged me this EJ!

While not a rookie year jersey (and neither are any of my authentic recreations), this would have been the same style EJ wore during his NHL Debut and First NHL Point, and the next game his First NHL Goal!!!

Here’s a video of Erik Johnson’s First NHL Goal in only his 2nd NHL Game on October 6, 2007 against the Los Angeles Kings. It ended up being the Game Winning Goal, as EJ scored on the Powerplay at 12:43 of the 3rd Period to break the 3-3 tie!
