32 Kevin Porter
2009-2010 Fourteenth Season
Reebok Edge 2.0 Airknit. Set 3. 54
MGG No. G00636
2008 Hobey Baker Award Winner
Acquired in a late season trade, Kevin Porter played 20 games for the Avalanche in 2009-2010. The following season his number was changed to 12, so this is likely the only burgundy number 32 worn by Porter as a member of the Avalanche. The wear on this jersey is light, consisting only of a larger black scuff mark on the rear number "3" and a pair of small tears in the lower left sleeve/cuff area. The jersey is accompanied by the Team/MGG LOA.

On March 3, 2010, the NHL trade deadline, Porter's time in Phoenix would come to an end. He was traded to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Wojtek Wolski.
